So much to learn!

  1. Wow, that is SO cool! I’ve been reading “A History of Costume” by Carl Kohler to help get a better idea of the clothing styles for my various fictional societies, but seeing the fabric and notions real and up close really brings it to life in a way drawings and B&W photos just don’t. That leather thimble is amazing; I’ve never seen one! Loved the tools all laid out too, and the naturally dyed yarns, and the close-up on the hose. Thanks for sharing!

    1. I also watched that recently! As it turns out, subtle differences in style and accessories make all the difference! Oh, and of course natural fibers are a must😉


  2. This is fascinating. Taking lessons at a Medieval History Museum sounds so interesting. I am absolutely NO good at things domestic like sewing, weaving, knitting and such, so greatly admire the talent in others.
    I write stories set in a sort of fantasy medievalish world, so like Joy, it is fascinating to see the materials up close. I’ve seen costumes and patterns, but to see the materials and notions — that gives it, as Joy says, a more intimate and immediate sense of the clothing.
    Wonderful post — especially since you weren’t feeling the best.
    Home schooling does allow for so much exploration on a intimate level. Another thing that I admire.
