Can I gatecrash this thread to offer what attracts me as a MOP regards stalls? All my large re-enactment purchases for my daughter are thought about in advance, and in these cases I go to the event with the intention of buying them.

I'd second that tewkesbury will have a much bigger client base. See you at Chatteris, I do hope you keep going.

We make and sell most things required for small weaving and braiding all of which are able to be used during re-enactments. I've just worked out who you are - takes me ages to put a face to a name. :) (Although it is my daughter rather than I that re-enacts, I do enjoy weaving ;) ) We also hope to ...

Thanks Paul,

Daughter and friends came back with armfuls of gear, and grins from ear to ear. (Think their wallets were considerably lighter though :wink: )

Showing my ignorance now - apart from asking how do you tell if a material is a mix, or pure? (both wool and linen)

Thanks,

Typical,

After having a large box of such pieces for several years, i finally got rid of it a couple of weeks ago (dragged it up to my sister in Rhyl, as she is a worse hoarder than me for such things). And as i work in Cambridge it would have been easy to drop it off for you!
