another, especially in areas where the branches are smaller and
therefore less diverse. It might be because one is more welcoming, or
because the members of one are more interested in a given activity or
period, or because things in one are more laid-back or better
structured, or for a variety of other reasons. Fortunately, it is not
only permissible but completely acceptable for you to make your "home
branch" (i.e., the branch where you regularly attend meetings and
events, participate in guilds, and volunteer your time) any branch you
like. It needn't be the one in whose territory you reside.
The only caveat is that some awards might be available only through
your "official" branch, depending on your kingdom's rules and policies.
For instance, if you live in the Barony of Broonswaggle, it's possible
that, should the Crown decide to award you arms, only the Baron and/or
Baroness of Broonswaggle can present the award. If you feel
comfortable and welcomed in the Shire of Thimbledrip and uncomfortable
and unwelcomed in Broonswaggle, however, I'd say, hang the awards and
go have fun.

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.
