About the Teacher: If you would like to look at my finished work, and a brief resume’ of me, I am Lady Olrun Elidasdottir, founding member of the C.I.A., and one of the seamstresses to have done the Coronation and reign garb for three of the last five Kings of Gleann Abhann (Duke Sir William Fitze hugh de Cambria Duchess Onora his consort, ( I & II) Count Loric and Countess Diana of the Isles, and some sewing for Count Jon the Tall.

Also I just signed up a set of Classes for BAM for making grab and sewing. Here's the scoop:
Early Period Garb Cutting and Construction:
How to fit your clothes so that you don’t look like you are wearing a sackcloth.
This class is basically going to offer the following:
Cutting out Early Period garb (which will consist of the following) How to measure yourself for the best fit Preparing your Fabric Cutting your fabric basic stitches to sew your pieces together hand finishing your garment This is the ONLY class where all students interested will need to bring their own fabric, with the following amounts based on what they want to cut: 60" is preferred, but if only 45" then add 1 yard to each amount. They need to pre-wash their fabric before attending the class. The suggested fabrics are linen, wool, cotton, or blends of them; NO STRETCHY MATERIALS PLEASE.
basic t-tunic (no gores or gussets) 5 yards basic tunic (WITH gores/gussets) 6 yards basic thjorsberg pants (baggy crotch pants) 5 yards Rus “poofy” pants with/without leg extension 6 yards basic t-tunic dress (no gores or gussets) 6 yards basic t-tunic dress (WITH gores/gussets) 7-8 (depending on ladies size) basic apron dress (with two sets gores) 4-5 yards (depending on ladies size) That sounds like a LOT of fabric, but one of the things I like to do is get people to see what they can do with the "scraps", which I am thinking to have them swap pieces with one another for cuffs and facings.
I will have some "play" fabric and some pattern paper if people just want to take the class and then go home and make their own.
I will also have around 15 “sets” of 5 yard cloth sets that can be purchased for 15.00 each, should anyone want to start with that. Again, those are first come, first serve.
Donations are also accepted here as well.
Now all of this sounds a bit overwhelming, but I usually start with the garb making class, which lasts 2-3 hours (times does fly when you are having fun) Once the “garb” has been done, then the embroidery classes show how to embellish or finish your garb into something a little more refined. Each embroidery class is usually 2 hours, and I start at the basic and go on to the more advanced stitches. A lot of people come in on the one and stay throughout.
