I check out these forums most days during the week but I don't necessarily log on. Does that make a difference? Steve C "I will keep ignoring the 'four word story' " Me too! Sorry Lord Byron.
Many thanks, I will be going to Whittington Castle tomorrow as a MOP, there are a few local(ish) groups attending. I'll go have a look and speak to someone :thumbup: (and try not to wander around with a pathetic look on my face in the hope that one of them will feel sorry for me and let me join!) :t...
Ditto Edeline's post. I am currently a member of a Tudor group but was looking for a group in another time period, I have been lurking in the background reading the society posts long enough, it's time to grasp the nettle.
Hi phendricks, I just noticed the line about crochet (they did crochet so why not knit?) I love to crochet but have never done any while in costume because I could never find any evidence of it (I'm in a Tudor, late 16C, group) do you know what type of crochet was done and where I could go to find a...
Hi and welcome to the site, I didn't recieve a private message it might be worth trying again and if it still doesn't work contact Cal. I am still waiting for the new block :roll: , but I will require your head measurement and other details before I can start anyway, so try again with the PM :thumbu...
Hi Joshua, I am having a nice new hat block made that can be adapted to make this design, if Adam can't help then PM me and I will see what I can do, but as I say my new block won't be finished until after Christmas.
What a fantastic story! I have just read it out loud and even in my very broad black country accent it sounds great. I hope you turn these into a book, I would buy it!

I think it looks lovely, very creative I'm not a LARPer but I'm sure whoever it is for will feel a million dollars in it. It looks very well made, well done .
Hiya, I have posted a similar request in the costume section but I thought I would also ask here, can anyone help with working class costume for a man between the wars, especially trousers and caps. He will need a couple of sets of everything as he will be in them all day so we would like to keep th...
A friend of mine as recenetly got a job as a museum guide and needs costume, he has asked me for help but the little I know is of a totally different time period. So, can anyone help with typical costume for a working class man in the 1920-1930 period. We are having difficulty finding trousers with ...

I have been going through some back issues of the New Scientist and came accross an article in the 26th Jan 08 issue about 'Marvellous mithridatum' (pg 52/53) by Stephanie Pain. It was very interesting Mithridatum apparently was a cure for almost every illness imaginable and a antidote for all poiso...
You can get flat fur felt, it hasn't been used for about 60years but it is back on the market. I found some here, http://www.hatsupply.com/flat_fur_felt.htm but if you contack Baxter Hart and Abraham they may supply it, they are very friendly and usually very helpful.
Thanks, I think I have cracked it! I was having a little trouble dying hackles (they just would not take up dye as easily as other feathers). I eventually tried a dylon dye for machine dying! I know this sounds a bit odd but they work at cooler temps than acid dyes or some of the dyes for silk etc. ...
