Children's Classes

The Children of the Silver Crescent are invited to the NEEDLE ARTS COLLEGIUM on Feb. 23-24. Classes designed by Lady Mairi-Kathleen nic Lauren will include making a small embroidered purse; beading a belt; embellingshing a satin Easter Egg; crewel stitching a badge; needlepointing a pin-cushion. A trip to a Textile Museum is also planned, plus other interesting diversions for active minds & bodies.

This is NOT a baby-sitting service; children will be expected to register for classes & pay attention to instructions. There will be a reprise of Saturday's lessons on Sunday to allow time to complete projects & obtain teachers' assistance.

Volunteers to help small hands manage needles & thread, follow instructions & maintain classes are needed. Volunteer docents for the museum trip are also needed. Contact Bjo of Griffin if you wish to help with this project of integrating the Children of the Silver Crescent into Collegium Caidis.

All children of Caid are considered to be part of the Silver Crescent; all that is required is your attendance & interest.
