I got this email today, and thought some of you would be very interested. If
you're not an SCA member, find a friends who is. ;o)

Greenberg & Hammer, one of New York's oldest notions and dressmaker shops,
serving the theatre community for more than 60 years, both nationally and
internationally, is showcasing the Coronation and Last Court gowns from the
first reign of Isabella & Andreas, as well as one male outfit from the
courtiers, in their window at 24 West 57th Street, in New York City, the
heart of haute couture. These garments were created by Her Highness
Isabella of York (Coronation), her apprentices, Lord Angus the Tailor (Last
Court), Lady Jacqueline Helene de Loisel (Male Courtier), as well as the
help of other folks who assisted in some of the details to bring them to
fruition. The window is a spectacular presentation of the passion of Her
Highness for the Society for Creative Anachronism as well as other ventures
in that same vein.
In continued support of the textile arts & sciences and by permission of
Greenberg & Hammer, Her Highness has garnered a 20% discount for all orders
over $50, 15% discount for all orders under $50 and free shipping on all
orders over $100, with proof of SCA membership (or simply mentioning this
announcement). This offer is good until September 30, 2002.
Greenberg & Hammer is for the serious costumer as well as the newcomers to
the medium of expression, having an enormous inventory of all types of
boning, muslin, buttons, embroidery flosses in silk, cotton & wool,
professional irons, steamers, millinery, linings, interfacings, scissors,

When in New York City, take time to visit them and, if before the end of
September, enjoy the window. It is a testament to the Society. Please pass
this announcement to all lists SCA-wide. Greenberg will be displaying
pictures of the costumes on their website as well.
