Greetings to all weavers, dyers, tailors, spinners, and textile workers of all persuasions!
For a brief shining moment, we thought we could gather in person, but we have returned to the online format, much like last year. The nineteenth annual FFF will be held online on November 20, 2021. We plan to return to our beloved Sieg Center on October 29, 2022.
We are seeking Zoom-ready classes on all aspects of textiles and clothing, from spinning the fiber to weaving the cloth, to embellishing the fabric, and constructing the garments (bonus points for things I've never even thought of).
If you are interested in teaching, please fill out this google form for each class you’d like to offer.
Registration is open now. All registrants will receive the Zoom links and access to the unofficial Discord server.
Flax and Linen Through the Millennia
Baroness Fiadnata ó Gleann Àlainn, OP
This class will be an overview of the domestication of flax and linen through the millennia, and the evidence we have for their existence in various times and places. We will track the movement of flax across the continents and through time, showing where evidence of the existence of flax is found, and what was being left behind for us to find it.
Bands, bands, bands
What evidence is there for band-weaving in SCA period, besides tablet weaving? Not as much as we'd like, but let's take a look.
