Join us for a three-day, two night camping event with a focus on
learning and the Arts & Sciences. Instructors from near and far

medieval world as well as to the SCA. Classes will range from
discussion and lecture based to hands-on activities. A wide range
of arts will be covered including lampworking, fiber crafts,
cooking, embellishing, brewing, soap making, and more. Many classes
are youth friendly for older teens or geared for younger age
groups. Arts and Sciences are the primary focus but there will also

officer positions and leadership roles of the SCA. There will be
classes for sergeantry and history as well. Some classes will
require you to bring supplies or have a class fee, be sure to read

Pattern Drafting
Instructor: HL Honour Golightly (aka

Instructor contact info: Contact Event Steward with Questions
moc.liamtoh@nihplod_nire
Class Size: Anyone who wishes to join in, no maximum
Class Length: two hours
Class Location: Main Hall
Cost or supplies needed: Paper and writing tools for note taking
and a chair
Description: The course details drafting a reusable paper pattern
from measurements taken from life. There is no duct tape used in
this method. If you have been patterning and fitting with duct
tape, this is the next step up. The purpose of making a paper
pattern is the ease of replicating a garment without having to
start from scratch each time a specific garment is desired, or
risking wasting expensive fabrics on an ill-fitting or unwearable
garment. This method works with rectangular construction as well as
more fitted garment styles. This is a very basic class but it would
be most helpful for everyone to have some prior experience in
cutting and sewing from paper patterns (even if unsuccessfully).
The class will concentrate on drafting and altering the paper
pattern. I will expect that you know what to do with the pattern
once it is made. There will be no sewing during the class.
Instructor will demonstrate how and where measurements are taken
and how to translate those measurements to paper to create a
medieval “sloper”. Instructor will then manipulate the sloper to
give the clothing style desired. She will show a “muslin” or test
garment cut and sewn from a similar pattern to explain fitting and
the alterations made to the paper pattern to correct errors in fit.
Instructor will also show a finished garment.

IMPORTANT SAFETY
STUFF!!!!
The Puyallup River borders this site and it is
running low, so there is a drop off along the bank. Please keep an
eye on small children at all times and encourage older children to
stick with a buddy. Since members of the Sportsmen’s association
fish along the river, walking barefoot is a bad idea, as stray
hooks could be among the rocks and bank. Swimming is not allowed.
Remember that rivers can have fast currents and it could be very
dangerous. While walking along the river and the small pond will
probably be included in one of our instructor’s classes, its
probably better to not go into the water.
