NAME:  "Naween" on the forum boards (If anyone actually recognizes where that name came from I may have to buy them a glass of mead if we run into each other at faire), but "Lady Garadeaux" at Faire. Last name is a combination of mine and m'lord's last names. ;)  Actual First name is Roberta, My faire first name is still TBD.

Joined RF:  August of 2007, thanks to the Wonderful Baron for approaching us at the Mead Booth!
Board "title" :  None.
Participation At Faire:  First year at MNRF last year as a playtron. It was awesome!

Garbing experience: My sister has her Bachelor's of Science in Human Ecology, Clothing and Textiles, so I've learned everything from her. Normally I get her to make stuff, but as she works for Silver Jeans, AND 35 hours a week part time for a suit store (Moore's), AND sews grad/wedding clothign on the side, I've decided to test out what she's taught me making garb. "Lord Garadeaux" makes his own, which means we right for sewing machine time. (We had two, but they died a week before faire last year, and had to run out and buy a new one...AND sew buttons on in the car during the 10 hour drive to Shakopee!). Generally we aim for faire-friendly, not HA clothing, because its expensive,and I'd rather have fun and love what I'm wearing than match things exactly. (My personal view (and I realize its not everyone), is that if we come up with enough "new" types of renaissance clothing, it can overtake the horrid 70'ish and hip hop clothing that is currently in style!)
Current creation will be a grey/black/white woven jacquard with black velvet noble's gown, with pearl trimmings! Ack, only 2.5 weeks til i attend faire, I must get bak to sewing now!

Photos of the two of us:

P.S. I STILL can't beleive we managed to find hose that would perfectly match his garb!!! :D

No picture right now. Some day, one of these days.

NAME: Selkie, formerly Selkie Lass (on the board)
Joined RF: Former lurker. Uh, some time in 2007, I think.
Board title: Seal Fae
Sewing experience: I have a little bit of sewing under my belt, but probably just enough to get me into trouble. :P Did some with upholstery and a little with making cloth dolls, but that's about it.
Garbing experience: Been to faire a few times at the Texas Ren Faire and the Four Winds Festival but just as a paytron. I'm finally working on putting some garb together to go with my user name and it will be my first time as a playtron. A few pieces of jewelry, a sealskin (the pattern's in progress), maybe a few actual pieces of garbs (drawstring skirt, a chemise and bodice maybe). If I get further into garb making, it will probably have a fantasy slant to it.

NAME:   Acuisla/Lady Anne (no picture - can't find one of me in garb, probably because I'm always the one with the camera!)
Joined RF:   Can't remember - maybe 2005 as a lurker?
Board "title" :   none - don't think I want one, either!  ;)
Participation At Faire:  Playtron at MNRF since 1997
Garbing Expereience:   I've been sewing since the age of 12, as I've always been too tall to find things that fit off the rack. My first "garb" was made in 1997 for MNRF, and I was so overwhelmed that I didn't make anything again until 2007! I suppose that's what I get for trying to make stuff from commercial patterns and having to lengthen EVERYTHING. Since that first costume (which is what it was), I've learned how to draft patterns, and have made garb for me, my best friend, and my children. Now if only I could get my spouse to agree - he looks JUST like Henry VIII!!!

Joined RF:   Today (Oct. 1st, 2008)
Board "title" :   Don't have one. 
Participation At Faire:  Pa(y)tron involving into playtron.
Garbing Experience:  Ack.  I'm about to embark on my first sewing adventure (cloak/coat/something for warmth).  Very very nervous about it as I am one of those darned ol' perfectionists.  All the women in my family are seamstresses (some as a hobby, some as a career, some because, like me, they're broke and have to mend things), so I've been both pressured and inspired into learning the art of sewing.  Provided I can make my way through the basics.  ;D

NAME:  Lady Isabel Manners Countess Rutland aka Kat
Joined RF:  Nov 2008
Board "title”:
Participation At Faire:  My husband and myself own a guild called The House of Swindon. Our website: I am the guild mistress and he is the guild master for the group. We started the group in 2004. We attend Northern Calif and Northern Nevada faires but we are head quartered in Rocklin, Calif by Sacramento.
We started doing faire over 17 years ago at Black Point and have continued ever since.

Garbing Experience:   I make mine and my daughters gowns and a few other ladies gowns as well. I make most of my husband’s garb. I try to make as much as I can however I do buy things when I have no time. I make all my feather fans and most of our jewelry. It’s just cheaper for me. Garbing a family can get expensive so I have learned that if we want to do this we need to figure out how to make it.
