One of the things that Clan McArgh and some of the other locals for MDRF have done is start a loaner garb locker. In addition to hand-me-down garb, we've also made "extra" during a Stytch-n-bytch to add to the lockers.  Folks bring their extra fabric and we make garb outta it.

   For many of us, making garb is a frell of a lot cheaper than buying it. For men, trews, shirts & jerkins are easy to do. For the ladies, chemises and skirts are pretty simple too. Bodices are a fair bit of work but so are doublets.

   Keep an eye out for a SnB in your area and join in.  For ours we try to keep it to 1 non-sewer to every 2 sewers.  If you can trace, pin, cut and/or iron, they'll normally be happy to have you join in.

OutStanding! The one thing my betrothed and I have seen is how helpful and giving the Rennies are.  We plan to start sewing our own stuff as well, after the wedding of course.  Now, how do you make this sewing machine work???

I am starting up a clothing business (Hodge Podge Clothing, Costume & Gifts) as soon as I relocate that way, Tobin Ru...  Magnus has already asked for a set of hire swords...
Tell me what you need...  I never charge fiends, I mean friends full price.  Or we can trade on it or something...

Sorry Lad,

  Though I have been attending Faire for a while now, I do not have any old stuff to give away. I still use all my old stuff, for I am a POOR BROKE Rogue. But  if I do come across anything I will let you know.
