Yes, once I learn to sew, I'll surely be looking the part. But that's  
not something I can do at events, only something I can appear at  
events. Cooking is the one thing I can actually DO at an event, albeit  
not actually on the Sabbath itself. On Shabbat, the thing I can do is  
interact (with people through conversation, with God through prayer)  
in a Period way, and yes, I'm working on that, too.
