> Greetings costumers,
> The people of the Outlands take great pleasure in inviting one and all
> to our fifth Costume Collegium to be held April 6 & 7, 2002 in Trinidad,
> Our guest speaker is Robin Netherton, known to many on these lists.
> Robin will present a detailed analysis of the fitted fashion of 14th
> century Western Europe, showing how it evolved from earlier unfitted
> fashions, the various versions and uses of the style, and how it formed
> the basis for the later development of the more structured fashions of
> the 15th and 16th centuries. She will also discuss the extant garments
> from the Herjolfsnes (Greenland) grave site, particularly the oft-cited
> "ten-gore" dress, with a discussion of how the Greenland finds might
> influence our understanding of 14th century European fashion.
> Marc Carlson from Tulsa OK, known in the SCA as Diarmaid O'Duinn, will
> present a history of shoemaking, and a short workshop on making the 3
> fingered glove seen in the Luttrell Psalter and other sources.
> We are also pleased to have renowned SCA embroiderer Lady Rouge du
> Maurier from Caid (Las Vegas NV), who will present a 2 day workshop on
> metal thread embroidery.
> There are many other teachers presenting a wide body of information on
> clothing within the SCA period, and we invite you to go to the web site
> (http://www.caerthe.org/ccv/) for more information.
> If any of you wish to share your knowledge and expertise with us in the
> Outlands, please fill in the teacher form on the web site. We will be
> delighted to have you!
> Of course there will be merchants. We currently have merchants selling
> trim and metal thread embroidery supplies, jewelry, and books. Merchants
> are warmly invited to email Mary Denise (editor at costumemag.com) to
> reserve a table.
> The event will take place in Berg Hall on the campus of Trinidad State
> Junior College. Directions and a map are on the web site.
> The site fee covers a light breakfast both days, a box lunch and the
> Saturday evening reception to honor our excellent teachers. Any
> materials fees, and the event proceedings are extra.
> Pre-registration using the form on the web site is strongly encouraged.
> We really want to know how much food to prepare!
