Last Summer I made a scaled down copy of the Braddock-Washington sash for Carlyle House. The word is that the display is now complete, and viewable to the public. Here is the photo they sent me, the mannequin wearing the general's uniform .... complete with sash.
Attended the University of Winnipeg’s Centre for Rupertsland Studies, presenting a paper on sprang. Met some amazing researchers, learned lots more about the Fur Trade.
All that sitting and demonstrating, I made several sprang purses.
I’ve also been working on another silk military sash.
Starting with a 13 ft warp, I now have an 11 ft sash. Two feet of ‘shrink’ on this one.
I recently finished up another of those silk officer sashes.
