    It is really easy. The hardest part is trying to decide which fabrics work best for you. If you are trying to go for warmth, look for nice heavy fabrics (fleece works well) on the inside and densely woven materials for your outer shell. Ski-jacket lining also works as a good middle layer, but that starts to make things a tad more complicated. Having someone else present to adjust your hem for you is also very helpful.

    Beyond that, all you need is a sewing machine, your thread, any clasps and embellishments you wish to use, and about 4 hours from cutting the pattern pieces out to your finished product.

    Feel free to get in touch with me or your local branch of the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) if you need help.

    Kamloops. If you couldn't tell from my location, it's not in the U.S.

    As for cloaks, they're surprisingly easy to make. Most fabric stores have decent patterns that you can choose from.

    I think it's going on 6(?) years here. From what I remember of the brochure, the copyright on the script is dated 2004, I think. It was freezing and windy when my room mate and I went last year, so I think I'll be taking my cloak along instead of my coat if we ever go again.

    The engine used to sit in the local park for the longest time until the heritage society decided to get it restored and working again. I remember playing on it when I was a kid.

    i wanna say ours might originally have been too...but this coming season will be the 15th year, so needless to say, things have gotten muddled.
