Of Spurtles, Forchettes, Bobbins and Buttons


Mistress Agnes hath been spending groats on the bay of E again. Some wonderous leather buttons with which to affix Master Christopher’s breeches, bobbins aplenty to wind her thread and other assorted items. She can now stir her porridge, pound her grain and delicately use a forchette, rather than fingers whilst eating her meat.

Swords and Spindles provide sessions to enlighten good folk of all ages about the domestic life and food of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Their presentations are ideal for schools, history groups and living history sessions at heritage days and fairs.
