  • Since I do mostly Roman reenactment, I pretty much buy exclusively linen and wool. Here are my favorite places in LA: Fabrics and Fabrics- A little more expensive but they typically have a lot of fine linen and specialty stuff like linen brocade Em-Be Fabric- Not a huge selection but the owner Moez is very reenactor friendly. They also have nice wool. (I got my Scottish Renaissance...

  • If we had submitted a class to teach, when should we know if it was accepted or not? I haven't heard anything either way. Thanks, Lisa Klassen-Barnes

  • Hello CGWers, I have a rather dire situation. I'm going to be wearing my Victorian ballgown to a Christmas party on Saturday and I need to figure out how to attach the train/bustle onto the skirt. I used TV's Butterfly Train pattern and one of their skirt patterns. I have a problem keeping the train/bustle part attached to the skirt. I've sewn hooks and eyes onto the waistband and...

  • I know this is rather late, but I finally finished leaving feedback for all of the classes I got to take this year. And I took many! It was great to have an online form this year and I would like to thank whomever made it possible. I do have a question- will the teachers be able to see our feedback? Although I've taught for many years, this was my first year teaching a limited...

  • Just a quick question-- I'll be teaching my last class from 3-5 on Sunday. My husband and I will have to check out around noon and he'll have nothing to do. Would you guys/gals need help tearing down? He is strong and good at organizing. : ) I would have to ask him, but I thought I might as well ask here first. Thanks! Lisa K-B

Most of the jewelry supplies are also 50% off. They have a large selection of flowers and...

  • Hello CGW, I need some help. I'm a pretty experienced sewer, but I haven't done much in the area of dance wear and some potential sewing opportunities have come up for me where I would be working with a lot of all way stretch and other similar fabrics. Can anyone recommend any books/websites/etc. that can help me build up my chops in this area before I go out and randomly buy a...

  • Thanks ladies! Heather, that was great info and I completely agree that it should go up on the website. And the examples were amazing. They answered my questions completely. I submitted my limited class proposal yesterday. I hope it goes over well! Thanks, Lisa

  • Hello CoCo planners, While I have taught many unlimited classes at CoCo, I've never taught a limited class. I'm not entirely sure how to figure out how many people I can have in the class. I would like to teach this class in one of the smaller rooms with one person per small table. I will also need each person to have access to a power outlet/strip (moving tables would be okay). Is...
