Re: [Authentic_SCA] What's your "thing"?
- My thing?
Well... I'm best at reading about things and not so good at doing...
or at least not at finishing things. A long time ago, I deliberately
pruned the list of things I dabbled with, to try and focus on
lacemaking and spinning.
but my interests include:
Lacemaking, especially bobbin lace and lacis, from the earliest known
til about 1650 or so.
Spinning and period spinning apparatus: wheels, spindles, distaffs,
combs, reels and such
(I'm the list mom for the SCA-spinning group)
Warp weighted Loom
other forms of fiber art, from prehistory up thru the end of period
Viking garb circa 1000
German/Italian garb circa 1550 - to wear while making lace, of course
Period cooking- especially over a fire
period tableware and linens
Pewter casting and other metal work
