A couple of months ago Klaus and I were throwing around the old "we should have a business sewing for the SCA" bit. Then he asked if I wanted to do it for real. And I said yes.

So I figured I'd mention it here. The Bear and Boar will have our first sales day at the Towne Faire. Uh, eek, er, hurrah? We're making clothes  - primarily hoods and coifs - to start. We're adding garments as we work through our stashes, making everything from kids' tunics to adult kirtles from period patterns. Ultimately, we're hoping to have clothes from kid sizes up to men's and women's many-XL, focusing on 1000-1500 AD.

Ultimately, we're hoping to do a few events and mostly do internet sales.

We're also inviting friends who do small craft batches to sell in our store. I'm hoping we can provide an outlet for folks like Goldric who don't make enough things to warrant running their own shops, but still make cool things to sell.

I'll keep y'all posted as we get our website up.

I am very interested in discussing with you the possibility of you carrying my hand-made soaps. Very interested.

I've been struggling with what Italian women wore on their heads between 1400 and 1600. Feel free to influence me with your wares.

I'll try. For a big chunk of that, it's "wrap a braid around your head."

Excellent. I wish you much success.

Thanks!

I think my goal for the weekend is to earn enough money to afford to hire housecleaners next week. Between 3 weeks of sick in this house and sewing, sewing, sewing, this place is trashed.
