I know there's someone out there.  Betsy, my friend who does 1812 (military and womens impressions) has already started her sewing dates.  My offer will be to anyone interested in sewing, sharing patterns or just doing hand crafts/ sharing a girls weekend.  Blndsrfn, I can either come there or the sewing weekend can be at my house.  I have a full size bed, a day bed, a very comfy couch, and camp bedding and space for a number of people with kids.  I have two sewing machines and space to set up anyone who brings one, and a nice area to cut patterns.   I also have a boatload of period dvds starring any number of hunky guys.(anyone see Cassanova with Heath Ledger?  A little campy, a little off on clothing--not by much--- but oh what a sweet looking young man.....thank god he's getting older so I can lust after him without guilt!!!) >:D    Anyway, we need to start thinking about dates so I can fit them around my winter activities (trip to Williamsburg, Reenactorfest, a few seminars in march)
the flamingos are my minions.

I've been off the computer for about a month now, since the trip to Fla. and Christmas....as far as a guy being involved in the women's sewing section... the more the merrier.  My husband cuts out all my projects right now and is interested in learning how to sew his own period clothing (I think he may have to do his own WWI since I have no interest or experience in that era) but quite a few men that I know do sew and actually sew quite well since they seem to be more cautious and concerned about the outward appearance while a number of my female friends do "half-assed" jobs just to get it produced.  My invite for a sewing weekend is to anyone who is interested.  If anyone is serious about the offer, please send me a personal message.  Bldsrfun, the offer still stands for viking and medeival stuff too.  Happy Holidays!!!

Awesome.... yeah, I started sewing back when I was in high school, when I really wanted a decent Star Trek uniform and couldn't find anything. So, mom taught me, and here I am with reenacting!

I'd be all about learning some other periods... I confess that I am stuck in the 20th century right now, but I do want to learn how the Romans did it (for when I start doing that, in the far future). Let me know if/when you do this........... thanks!
