Irish Runes

 

House

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!

So we now have 8 rune designs available at 3 x 4″ patches, to be attached to jackets, dance bags, whatever.  They cost $8 each, plus shipping, and come with a fusbile on the back.  They are washable.

We have a variety of background colors, and many colors of beautiful rayon thread as well.  Some threads are variegated, which means they change color as you go along.  The designs we have are:  Balance, Swing, Do Si Do, Do Si Do with Twirls, Gypsy, Hey for Four, Ladies Chain and Petronella.  If you’d like to own a patch, just contact us.

Here are examples of each design:
