      You're in luck, Sylvie just posted links to her two tentage projects
      in a previous message:
      I have not experienced the glory of the "Taj", but she did a great job
      on her wedge tent and I know she can probably point you at some other

      Not having the time or a heavy enough sewing machine, my wedge is
      store-bought from a Civil War sutler. (www.blockaderunner.com) I'm
      quite pleased with it and should really send them a photo of the
      heraldic painting I put on it to mess with their tiny CSA minds.

      If you are tall or claustrophobic and don't like the idea of the walls
      closing in on you, a wedge, A-frame or geteld may not be your best bet.
