Re: Advice for a new trader

I did my first proper year of trading this year, the only advice I am able to give you is: Don't be in a rush, take your time to do a few shows, then see what you need as you go along, I stupidly didn't do this, thought I would need this, that and the other and didn't try them out first, end result ...

Re: Stall fittings for trading tents?

Hi Sally, This is my first full year of trading and like you had been looking for fittings that were appropriate for what we do, everything I looked at was either far too expensive or just not suitable for transport/weight/style etc. Sooo, with this in mind, I was chatting to a reenactor/woodworker ...

Re: The simple dress pattern

D*mn & Blast, everything is fine except I've made the neck far to wide,big, so it's almost on the shoulder, can't take it in or put a centre seam as It will be too small, any ideas? or can I make a wimple that has the material going over the neck collar etc. and pin it to that just to keep it up?

The simple dress pattern

CHAPTER & VERSE, PRE OWNED BOOKS

If you are looking for a certain book,I may not have it in stock but may be able to get it/ source it via other book dealers/sellers in my area. Plus, I may be able to get it a bit cheaper, can't always promise to deliver, but will try. And don't forget, I also trade/buy used books at events.

In England in the 1468 - 9 Brewers Book of Norwich, the name for barm was goddisgoode because it was made by the blessing of God. In the absence of understanding, God was invoked as the great provider.
