[SCA Newcomers] Re: Huzahh, I Finished my first Tunic, and Cape
- Gavin, I'm not far from you (Bentonshire) and I may be able to hook
you up with some good people from Markaster or Wywernwood... or we
can meet at the event so you're not alone. Please contact me off list
(al_29@...) if interested.
P.S. I'm going to T4T this Sat.

- --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.
