how you can make or where to buy reenactment supplies to build your
very own period-specific sewing kit! “The art and technology of
sewing has developed well past the days of sewing with sticks and
small bird bones, but how did it develop? Learn what your persona
would probably have owned and used, based on both the time period,
as well as your location. Materials reviewed will cover all of
Europe, Russia, and portions of the Middle East and Asia from
antiquity through the 16th Century.”
