Need handspun? Want Handspun?
Danger Looms has all your handspinning needs. They take special orders and work closely to ensure the product you get is what you need. There is always something available in the store.
Currently we have some Icelandic and Corriedale (Although the CD is not period, I find it very close to Merino in texture) , and can easily aquire shetland in natural colors, as well as other more exotic fibers.
Most come in natural colors, but if you're willing to wait we can also aquire dyed fibers to spin for you, and offer a HEAVY discount if you supply the fiber yourself!

credit card swiping, on the road
Does anyone have experience with iPhone plug-into-the-microphone-jack credit-card swiping thingummies? I'll be selling at a few events on the road for a while, and away from my computer (and website), and am thinking that some way of accepting credit cards would be spiff - without access to PayPal....

Jewelry Making in Virginia?
I'm trying to find a good local resource for folks who make jewelry. Specifically, people who cast their own rings/metalwares.
So far w/ various internet searches, I'm not finding a group or forum locally for artisans who do this kind of thing.
It occurred to me however, that SCA'ers might.
Can any of you point me to a person, website or forum? I'm hoping to find People local to the 757 area-code to meet/talk with.

Need a ride to Pennsic - NYC area
Sorry if this is a little off topic but desperation time has set in and I need some help.
My friend and booth helper Mary Jane needs a ride to Pennsic. She lives in the New York City area and can leave either Thursday night or Friday morning July 31. She only has a duffle bag, small rolling luggage, and her backpack and can share gas and driving. Can anyone help? Please contact me here or email Pacita at materialis dot com.
Thank you so much for your help!

On Birka, design sketching
So I just wanted to share something that happened to my husband this weekend at the East Kingdom's Birka event. I thought it might generate some interesting conversation.( Read more...Collapse )
This brought up a lot of interesting conversation for us. From historical versus modern design stealing, to the social interactions of scadians and nobility, to life in the sca and out, to how people are "brought up" in the society, and so on. I thought I would share.

Search for Shoes?
Please feel free to delete this if it is not appropriate...x-posted anywhere I thought it might fit/I might find aid.
So, I have been trying to find shoes...I'm half convinced at this point they do not exist and I'll need to compromise.
But on the off chance someone here has any idea what I'm babbling about and can point me in a direction--I'm hoping for low heeled and not too pointy of a heel for standing/walking on forest floor without sinking too far into the ground. [this might be the point I sadly have to compromise on, and when I am on the ground just walk in my toes...]
I have a preference for it not coming above my ankle in size [and possibly being a more 'open' type of shoe (does not have to be tree-climbable or runnable in, but walking and dancing, yes please.)], but again I might be willing to compromise on this.
I'm also hoping for black leather [or something that looks similar enough], cause other than sneakers I find I wear shoes that do not match this description not very often at all and eventually due to this have to give them up.
Other than that, I'm flexible. Wanting it to feel fancy/dressy, possibly delicate in some ways.
Thanks for any comment or links one has.

New Merchant on the block...
My business partner, whitestagg
and I have finally put our new venture on the web:http://www.danelawtraders.com/
We're new. We're small. We're based in the southern part of the Barony of Stonemarche in the East Kingdom. Anyone who was at Panteria, Midsummer in Stonemarche, or the Great Northeastern War has seen us there. We hope to make it to many more events. Just check the events listing on the web site.
Please check us out and comment here or there with any suggestions, ideas, business ideas, etc. that you may have.

Historically Accurate Jewelry
I've noticed that people interested in recreating historically accurate jewelry and beadwork are scattered to the winds, so I created pastjewels
in the hopes of bringing people together to share resources, designs, news, information and skills.
This will become a place to discuss all aspects of creating historically accurate jewelry!
Stop by if you're at all interested! :)

I've been selling hand-made jewelry at SCA events and craft fairs for about a year now. What do I have to do to be able to accept credit cards???

Thanks to orlacarey
for the heads up.
CNN reports that gas prices may reach $4.00 per gallon thanks to refinery issues in the USA. This will naturally impact profoundly on the ability of SCA merchants, in their vans, trailers and other less efficient vehicles to go to events.
while SCA attendees can often car pool, merchants usually need all the room they have for merchandise plus tents.
