Inter-Kingdom Intensive Needlework Symposium

The West Kingdom Needleworkers Guild and the Caidan School of Needlework invite one and all to come & enjoy classes designed for the Embroiderer seeking more in-depth instruction and historical information.

Some of the featured classes include Opus Anglicanum (Dame Richenda Elizabeth Coffin), Elizabethan Sweetbags in Depth (Baroness Eowyn Amberdrake), and Voided Work Pattern Design (Baroness Sabrina de la Bere).

The classes will be held in conjunction with Caid's Fall 2008 Collegium Caidis at the Calle Mayor Middle Shool in Torrance, California. Pre-registration for the symposium will open April 1st.

In addition to the classes, needleworkers are invited to participate in an inter-kindgom display of their handwork.

We will also be offering an optional excursion on Friday (Sept. 19th) to Hedgehog Handworks for historical needlework supplies and to the Getty Museum (

Saturday evening will feature a joint dinner at a local restaurant with needleworkers from both kingdoms.
