I attended Lady Thora's class on stage fright and how to combat it, which was really useful. I taught a class I called Garb Rehab that mainly focused on mending and darning techniques for repairing garb, but also touched on other ways to spruce up older garb, such as overdying, adding new trim/embellishment, and re-cutting garb. I posted the handout here so that those who didn't get a copy could grab one. I had a dozen people attend some or all of the class, which I consider a roaring success. I had encouraged people to bring their own damaged garb for repair, but most people didn't bring anything, so this turned out to be a great class for me, since I brought a whole big bag full of garb that needed mending. I got a pair of socks darned and several dresses repaired by folks who wanted to try out new skills. Win/win! I'll be teaching this one again at an event this fall, which is so fun. I love turning my passions into something useful for others.
The Cooks' Guild provided lunch in the form of all things hand pie, and my contribution was two batches of blackberry apple ginger galettes (one gluten-free, one regular) using a new to me pastry recipe that uses oil rather than butter or lard. As always, I hate making gluten-free pastry, but they must have tasted good because they were gone before I even tasted one. Here's a pic.
Finally, congratulations to my sister Lady Thora, the new Arn Hold Arts & Sciences champion. She did a wonderful job with her art and it was well-earned.
