- Hi Tara, I have three questions for this class. So I looked ahead at
assignment #6 and aside from the reading am I correct in believing
that there is not a writing assignment for that week? I was
wondering what we were supposed to do with our garment of clothing
that we found from a time before we were born? I thought that it was
due on March 10, but there is no mention of it in assignment #7.
Finally, I was wondering where we can go to look at our grades.
Thanks for all you help, Abrah
- Week six only has a short assignment, that is posting
your reflections on corsets (the link from "Step 2"
in the chapter) because the next week's assignment
(making and tying a regency neckcloth) tends to be
arduous for most people.
The reason I let people know very early about the need
to find a garment is that often people have a
time-consuming struggle to get one if they are in a
remote location or want to buy one on eBay. This
gives people ample time to bid for and lose, then bid
for and win, then get a garment shipped to them if
they are in a locality without access to a vintage
clothing store, costume collection or family attic. I
have previously had students in this class in places
like rural Alaska, Australia and Poland that needed
the extra time to get something shipped to a rural
location. The reason for the March 10th "due" date is
so that one may (if one does not have a digital camera
or scanner) take a set of photos of both the neckcloth
assignment and the study garment (with a disposable or
other film camera) at the same time and take it in or
send it off for processing onto digital format early
enough to be useful. If you already have your garment
and wish to get to work on the final project early, go
and week 13
for details on how to do work on the parts of your
I still haven't got the grade pages up, I'm presently
still digging myself out of the mountain of eMail...
I taped your show on friday and the tape is getting
transferred to VHS by the library. Once it does you
should be able to make copies using the dept VCR.
