Hi everyone, I'm not sure who to email this to, I think Rose is the contact person.  I am available to teach a basic sewing class at the A&S.  This would be a basic mundane sewing class, not representing any time period specific period technique in the SCA, but a manner to help beginners or not so beginners in sewing garb.  Topics for the class would include basic fabric types, fabric preparation, basic pattern drafting, taking your measurements and basic pattern layout.  I can be contacted at kit_ivanovna at yahoo.com or 831-644-9115.
  Thank you,
  Caterina di Genova

I'm new, so you probably don't know me, My name is Shaun, I came to the 
fencing practice up in Santa Cruz last thursday. I for one am very very 
interested in having practice down here, I believe there was another man by 
the name of Shei, I don't know if thats the right name, but he fights with a 
double clamshell swept hilt rapier with 4 upswept quillions and an 
interesting pattern on the clamshells, that he got from "James the just" In 
any event, we were talking maybe tuesday. He hasn't called me yet, so I 
don't know quite whats going on, but he should call me sometime this weekend 
to let me know whats going on. If you want to call me, my number is 
831-583-9751. If you call and get no answer I'm prolly out, but if you call 
in the evening chances are you'll find me. Hope to talk to you soon.

Good day,

I'd like to introduce myself, rather than lurking, since this list seems rather quiet. While I've never visited an SCA event, (local Renfaire doesn't count...) I'm quite interested in much of what I've found online. Everything from Calligraphy to modern castlebuilding.

My mundane name is Allan, haven't quite figured out a persona for period use, though. Working on some research for a reasonable attempt at garb so I don't feel too self-concious when I *do* manage to visit an event.

I've already been interested in Calligraphy, bookmaking, blacksmithing, armoring, and other period craftsperson persuits. Even before coming upon the SCA, I had often considered ways of making modern conveniences work with ancient equipment (whether they actually did or not is another story). Hot water showers and running water, hydro-powered smithy bellows (paper mill, grain mill, clothes washing, etc.) and perhaps even landscape watering. 

Well, I can't really think of anything further to ramble on about (besides how cool it would be to build a real castle...o.O) so I'll cease.

If anyone has some pointers for a newcomer, or just some interesting information, let me know. Thank you,

Allan S. Menefee
