Toile cutting day, Yorkshire?

Postby Maerwynn » Sat Nov 29, 2008 10:52 am

At TORM, I spoke to a lovely woman from the Clarences (sorry - rubbish at names :oops:) who was working with Sarah Thursfield, and she mentioned that she was organising a day for all the newbies in the Clarences and other 15th century gangs in the area to get together for a kit making day and a bit of a social. Any details available yet?

Sounds fun, can anyone come along when you have organized it yourself due to the lack of replies...

I would consider running one on this side of the border if there were enough people interested and anyone could think of somewhere suitable to hold it.

It wouldn't need to be somewhere huge, but my workshop wouldn't hold more than me and someone else!

What do people think?

I could probably borrow you the hall where we train.

sounding good...
if venues are an issue I have a big kitchen, and connecting room, and front room, all of which are used to being covered in projects. I do live in the back of beyond ( within 25 mins reach of the m6 though).
Not that I have any knowledge to share, just sounds like a good way to spend a day, gossip and sewing kit, Cake?
Oh yes, we must include cake!

Oooh, yes please. And definitely count me in if there's going to be cake as well :lol:


None of the ideas expressed above are really mine. I get them from Luthor and Ferdinand, the five inch tall space aliens who live under my desk. In return for these ideas, I have given them permission to eat any dust bunnies they may find under there.

Toile/cake cutting day

Postby hazyma » Thu Dec 04, 2008 11:08 am

As i sit here in snowy Northumberland, unable to get to school :o I set to thinking about cake and the fact that i can't make one cos the painter is in my kitchen but I wondered what is the favourite cake of re enactors?
I know this should probably be under food but I thought if it's under costume mostly girls will reply and it's girlie ideas I was wanting!!
As a ma of one of the Clarence women - shall i ask more about the original conversation? :?:

Yes please to the asking thing Hazyma...
Cake- 1 chocolate ( of course)
2 Ginger
3 Fruit
4 Scones
If attending the Clarences do, I promise in return I will bring cake.

Well, my bread is always successful!

Not much use to me at school though! Mmmm... cheese scones with melted butter...

Oh why did I eat my lunch at break time? :cry:

Oh, and, er, [/cuba] :oops:

It was me! I was the one from Sarah Thursfields stall. We had the body block session last weekend, but I can ask the Clarences if we can have another one before the season starts.

Hello Hecate, I take it that was you brining Sarah much needed tea while I was there.

I can recomend the training courses that Sarah runs. KIBS have actually made it an anual event, we find it so valuable and such fun. They're not cheap, but well worth it. Just remember TAKE LOTS OF NOTES.

We normally get ten or so of us togeather in one of the larger member's houses (the house is large, not the member :wink: ).

You get to handle reproduction fabrics so that you've an idea of what you're looking for, you get an introduction to the costume history of your period and advice on implementing your costume. Take your books along and read them before you go, so you've got the ideas clear in your mind.

The hard part is trying to get all the new garments sewn in time for the next season...

:D
