Meet Drachenwald's Laurel of the Month: Mistress Lia de Thornegge

Each month, the Laurels of the Kingdom of Drachenwald showcase one of their own. For January 2015, it is Mistress Lia de Thornegge of Nordmark (Uppsala, Sweden), who specializes in late period embroidery and late period costuming.

Mistress Lia writes:

For me, this society has been a focus for the crafts I did before ever joining, the perfect place to use the items I made myself. Although main focus is on textile arts, I like to work with wood and leather from time to time as well, and I've made a few simple wax tablets decorated on the outside with carvings. I want to try cuir bouilli to make hardened leather cases for glassware, for example.
