embroidery tutorials

The Renaissance Store has a two-part tutorial on Viking embroidery by Gael Stirler, originally published in their newsletter—

Part 1
Part 2

This store is a great place to find costumes (or patterns if you want to sew your own) for medieval and renaissance gowns that are perfect for attending Renaissance Faires or for Halloween costumes. Long story, but I once dressed as a Celtic priestess for a Renaissance-themed party, and I found a number of accessories here. And lots of information as well.

I visited the site links you listed and really enjoyed reading about the embroidery. One thing led to another and I realized I need to pop back over here to say thank you before I read all their other interesting bits. I also wanted to say that I love your idea of a Celtic costume.
