One of the neat things that I love about being involved with the SCA is the opportunity to learn new crafts. Often, the teacher creates a “kit” for the students to work from. You take your 30 or 60 minute class but you’ve only been able to complete a part of it. Ideally, you take… Continue reading What’s next?
For the last month, I have been working on a secret project. A present for (sca) Baronessa Jocelyn. It’s a chalice cover. While not “period” in the strictest of senses, they are a great way to keep things out of your drink (like bugs, and leaves, etc) while outside.

Before any one says that I am too hard on myself, I will say that you are correct on most… Continue reading Warp and Weft part the second!
I didn’t think I’d be writing again, so soon, but here we are… My local SCA group has a lot of weavers. And they weave all kinds of things. I, on the other hand, haven’t weaved a single thing. (Those horrible pot holders from 1st grade don’t count!) I found out that one of our… Continue reading Warp ‘n Weft
