I'm new to this list. My husband (and son) and I are beginning
reenactors who primarily do post-civil war here in Texas. I just
wanted to get in contact with others of like mind.
My husband is a private in the Calvary here at Fort Concho in San
Angelo Texas. I do whatever I can during our reenactments...
primarily, I like to spin wool. I've just started weaving triangular
shawls (the triangle loom has been around for centuries). I'd be
interested in any trading... either for skeins of handspun to a
crochet-er or knitter (I'd like to have a couple of handspun,
crocheted snoods) or trade a sewn dress (I need another) for a
handspun, handwoven shawl.
My husband is also a gunsmith who is quite adept at working with the
historic rifles and such.
Our son, Oliver, is 2 1/2 and enjoys "reenacting" period-correct
temper tantrums from the 19th century!
