Friends of mine cured a horse skin using its brains and I think some ash? Can't really remember... I can give you their contact details though if you’re interested? Oh - they did a photo doc on it :D : http://members.optusnet.com.au/jasarm/home.html The photos are under Gallery. And the explanation ...

At the last event we had I grabbed a few bottles of Raspberry & Lovage cordial and mixed up about 20ltrs. Added some tinned raspberries (which promptly fell apart) and plonked the bottle in the middle of camp. It was very appreciated. Had a light pink appearance and looked quite pretty with the ...

I must agree with janes-wardrobe. I used bleach to whiten a linen undershirt... the other day my hand went through the front. :oops: . Bleaching seriously weakens the material.

Adam,
I don't play the recorder (As Xioumi can readily attest to :lol: ), so I found the fife very easy to play. The fingering is the same as whistle fingering. I also own the single piece Sweetheart and I love it. A very nice little instrument.

I love the dress and the head-dress. What is the dress made of, it's such a lovely rich colour. The material is silk dupion. I believe there is currently a discussion on another thread as to this materials inappropriateness to reenactment. The only silks available here are dupion, raw (with some di...

Lidimy,
Even after using the smallest reduction the file size is still too large :roll: . I shall just get my friend to do it instead.

Have added an image below of myself in my 14thC dress.

The_weaker_vessel, You're a braver person them me. Those sleeves look difficult. But I bet they'll look quite spesh. When they're finished. I did have a nice sleep as well, but unfortunately the dawn came to soon. The US Kitty Hawk arrived yesterday so I shall be miserly on sleep for the next two da...

Lynn, Buckram is EVIL :twisted: , run from it! I'm probably just saying this as I made a rather large mistake with it earlier this year in a costume I was making :oops: . But still, I have found that in general it’s a bit of a pain. What sort of sleeves are you making? Annis & Lidimy, Thanks so ...

Hi All.

Hi All, I'm (sort of) new to the site and thought I'd pop in and say hi. Was an avid reader a few years ago but have been under the radar for a while. Thought I’d come back to try and find some old friends in the hope of meeting up with them later this year. Below is a picture my partner and I atten...
