  •  I just checked the website... (5+ / 0-)

    and there is a local group for mine and the neighboring county, but no website of their own.  I'll get in touch with the email contact and find out.

    Who knows, I might even find a costumer through the group with whom I can exchange tips.  (As an avocation I restore old vestments, and make new ones in traditional gothic and Roman styles.)

    •  I know that we'd love to have you in our SCA group (2+ / 0-)

      Everyone is welcomed with open arms, but someone that we don't have to teach to sew? That knows garment restoration, ffs? We'd be sitting around you in a circle, eager to learn!

      And then we'd start pulling out the books and articles, and the debating would start, re: garment construction in various periods. That gets fun, especially when you can point to 2 different methods for sleeve setting in one garment. :p (You have to love recent bog finds.)

      All this goes double when we're testing the lastest batch from the Household brewer. For example, right now he has a cider going that's expected to make it to 15% ABV, and last weekend we made an all-grain pumpkin stout that will probably be 6-8% ABV (yay brewing class, even if I was the only one who showed up!).

      And people would probably try to rope you into teaching classes on vestments in church history.

      And yes, SCA folks would LOVE to learn about those things.  There are a lot of avid researchers in all kinds of subject areas, and the costumers are incredible fonts of information.  I know locally (mid-Atlantic) we have "University"  events that are nothing but seminars and classes for people to share info they've researched.

      And someone who knows Latin is also a plus!
