Summary: Tulli gave one corner of the polished crimson linen a light tug, the fingertips of his other hand smoothing out the puckered winkle that had formed in the center of the delicate fabric. A smile rose slowly at each corner of his mouth as he looked over the array of cloth scraps set out upon the worktable, set beside a plethora of measuring tapes, scissors, spools, and pincushions bristling with needles – everything was ready. The students would be coming in soon, and the long strips of fabric arranged over the table were ready and waiting to be used in the apprentices’ newest projects – belts, this time. It was the perfect choice for a general lesson, incorporating the possibilities for almost every aspect of the craft, from the basic and necessary – sizing, cutting, hemming, work with fastenings, buttons, or buckles – to the optional and specialized – embroidery, backing, beading … almost anything imaginable. But those last may very well have to wait for more advanced classes; the basics would always take precedence.
