Re: [fortressthreemonkeyskulls] Re: Holiday Meeting
- Okay--Let me brainstorm about ideas for A&S classesI can defintely teach a class on the period cross stitch technique i learned from Nest.I'm also thinking of doing an overview of sumptuary laws, both in period and in the SCA.I think having a bring your books in type of day would be good too, where we bring in some of our more unsuual books to share during the meeting with everybody else.Also I can do a class on looking objectively at illustrations and portraits to figure out how to reconstruct the garment pictured.Basic Pattern construction for simple garb such as tunics, chemises, sideless surcoats.Those are the ones i can think of off the top of my head.I'll keep thinking of other ideas, etc.-GuenMERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYBODY!If I had a bigger house I'd have a huge christmas party for everybody to come over.... but alas, i do not.

Date: Saturday, December 13, 2008, 9:08 PMi agree that opening up our household to LARP would be a good idea as
we met many an interested fencer at the Dragon Claw event and there
is (contrary to popular SCA beleif) nothing wrong with crossover
character as long as they can keep history and fantasy seperate. any
new blood at this point would only help stregthen the walls to this
fortress but would add to whatever group they chose to play with.
I also agree that small classes or projects would be a good thing to
do at meetings as we can not only grow in our personal education
about the SCA, but encourage the younger generation to look to the
past to change the future. As far as where we have meetings that can
be a flexible thing as long as we can meet somewhere. Pot luck is a
good idea so long as where we meet approves of such practices. Again
as members we should all be looking for a meeting place as this is
not just a head of household thing. we have more than 3 members in
this house hold and any one can give us a suggestion to check out.
maybe a brainstorming session is in order any way that is my opinion
and i have been told i am very opinionated.
have a happy holiday no matter what you celebrate. As for my family
we say merry christmas.
