Re: Arm Guards
- I guess I should introduce myself a little more formally!
I am Lady Teresa of Blackwell Hall, I reside in the Shire of
Schattentor, Kingdom of Northshield, MKA Rapid City, South Dakota
(therefore the problems of finding anything unusual). I have been in
the SCA for a little over 2 years, I am currently the shire MoAS, I
am 1520ish Tudor. I do lots of sewing (including a 12 foot/12 spoke
pavillion, taking way longer than I thought) and have been wheel
spinning since last year. I have started rapier fighting this winter,
and am trying to restart archery this winter as well.
My daughter has been doing rapier for 2 years, she is now old enough
for heavy combat, so we spent this last summer building a Spangen
Helm and full kit of armor for her.
I love the SCA and am having a blast learning and playing!!

I too would be interested in the pattern. Maybe the pattern can be
posted to the community under in the files area? :D
