History has always fascinated me. After joining the SCA in 2013, I was given the opportunity not only to live history, but to help preserve the arts and sciences of the medieval time period. As a degreed historian this was extremely appealing to me. This page will chronicle my attempts to study and recreate articles of clothing and various accessories as used and worn by our ancestors. I do not claim to be an expert, and I intend to chronicle my failures right along with my successes.
“Stitches In Time” will focus on various sewing projects, including hats and headwear (a favorite of mine), garb, embroidery, and other needle arts. “Make All The Things!” will be more eclectic, and will include my attempts at making jewelry, illuminating manuscripts, banner making, woodworking, etc. It will also encompass more modern sewing and craft pursuits. “SCA Life” will chronicle my activities in the SCA.
