RE: [SCA Newcomers] Re: Huzahh, I Finished my first Tunic, and Cape
- I have yet to go to an event. Our local Barony, has been ok, I have
asked about loaner garb, but the response I had been looking for was not
that encouraging or welcoming. Gave me the feeling that we were not all
that welcome, and while we were tollerated, we were not taken by the
hand, and shown around. These are just my observations mind you, and may
not reflect the true spirit of the group.
I have communicated with other folks from neighboring barony's and felt
more comfortable with them, than my own local group.
Anyway, I decided that if I was going to go to an event, I would just
make my garb, instead of borrowing, and pray that I wasn't laughed at to

Your garb looks awesome!! I admire the great deals you found along
the way and your ability to do this with no experience.
I just made my first tunics and went to my first event last month.
These people are so cool!!

- --It's great that you were able to find many treasures to make your
garb with. A couple years ago through an associate,I was shown how to
make a t tunic dress with a couple different types of sleeves. I made
myself one and one for each of my daughters. My oldest daughter at
that time thought they were awesome.(We attended an event only this
one time)...... She is a very newcomer(2 weeks) to the whole SCA
thing that I didnt know until recently that she has been going to
meetings and fighter practice for archery. She quickly realized that
the type of sleeves of her dress got quite in the way of the bow
string. So off we go again to make a proper garb for her new
interest. We are hoping we have it sewn by Jan. 26th. Wish us luck.
