By Admin / August 1, 2016

This week, we are starting a whole new theme – Performers!  And our first category will be SCA.What Is It:There are many different types of performers.  In the SCA, most performers are called “bards” (though I know a few who really *hate* that term). But they don’t all sing or write poetry.  There are occasional tumblers, […]

What Is It:This month’s theme is Jewelry and first up is the SCA category.  It’s hard to find jewelry in some categories, but that is not the case with the SCA. There are many incredibly talented jewelry artisans in the SCA, so this time it wasn’t hard to find a listing – it was hard to […]

Featured Listing: Margo’s Patterns

By Admin / April 18, 2016

What Is It:The last category in our Patterns theme is Medieval or Renaissance patterns for SCA (or other reenactors).  Unlike the other categories, I found several independent pattern makers! I haven’t used any of them myself, so I looked for reviews to see which ones were the best.  The only one I could find any real […]


Featured Listing: MacGregor Historic Games

By Admin / March 14, 2016

What Is It:What do you think people did in their free time, in the Middle Ages?  There was no Internet then, no Xbox.  Heck, the average person didn’t even have books then. There was no electricity, just candlelight.  Storytelling was popular.  As was going to bed early.  But people are people, no matter what century […]

Featured Listing: The School of Historical Dress

By Admin / January 4, 2016

What Is It:Recreating clothing from times past can be a challenge.  The further back you go, the harder it gets, as research sources become fewer and farther between.  Many historical sources (paintings, statues, etc.) also tend to become more stylistic than documentary in nature.Lucky for us, there are museums and others around the world who […]
