I visited some friends recently who dance a lot of Irish sets.  We looked at the runes, to see whether any of them would be appropriate to the Irish dancers.

The design I use for Petronella works wonderfully for the Irish move called “House”.  You “house around” at the end of many sets.  So here is a version of that same design, but called HOUSE.

The Irish crowd also uses a swing, and a move that is similar to square dancing’s “grand right and left”.  So watch for that design in the future, you Irish fans!

If you’d like a patch, contact me.  They cost $8, plus shipping.  Each one has a fusible on the back, to hold it in place while you SEW it onto a garment or bag.

Patches Galore!

It is SO MUCH FUN to embroider these rune patches!  The rayon thread has a wonderful sheen, and some are even “variegated”, so they change colors as they go along.  We have a number of options for background colors, too.

We now have 8 designs:  Balance, Swing, Do Si Do, Do Si Do with Twirls, Gypsy, Hey, Ladies Chain and Petronella.  They are 3 x 4″, with a fusible on the back.  Washable.  We sell them for $8 each, plus shipping.  Contact us if you’d like to own one.

Here are examples of the designs:
