A Class out of Whole Cloth
Sometimes a class is altogether too easy. Since the Shire is planning a trip to a fabric store, I brought a variety of different fabrics to our regular A&S Night so people could see and feel some different kinds of fabric. The dreadful polyester from 1970 threw people off a bit, and some were glad for very limited exposure to wool. A few cottons were pretty good substitutes for period fabrics. But linen was the big hit. The local fabric store doesn't sell linen, so we may have a field trip to the Twin Cities in our future.
