Winter has been prodded in the back by Spring and suddenly Christmas is looming large on the horizon. St Ives Medieval Festival was a fabulous event despite the inclement weather; meeting so many lovely new people and renewing old friendships is always a pleasure. We are now busily restocking in time for the approaching holiday season and the quiet but busy time in re-enactment here in Australia, when everyone has the time to work on new projects.
To aid in these endeavours, we have brought in saddler's harness needles (regular and fine) for hand-stitching leather, historically accurate artisan wool thread packs in a range of colours, as well as a range of shears, needle cases, awls, thread winders and thread reels.
As usual, new book titles are continuing to arrive and will be going up on the site throughout the month including a restock of the Stuart Press booklets. The new range of table linens, towels and cushion covers are up and a new line of Australian hand forged dining knives will be debuting shortly. For the dark age connoisseurs’- reindeer pelts from Finland (with certification) are also now available.
That’s all for the moment so until next time, we bid you all - good reading.
