Squire's Tavern / Re: What Could Faires Or Rennies Do To Help?

I'm glad I could help, Lord Argyl.  I just hope more people across the country start watching my PSA videos.

Those are good ideas too, groomporter.  I can suggest that faire organizers put a page on their websites with written, or even better, a link to videos of their histories.  I've been going to the Oklahoma Renfest for 20 years now.  It doesn't look anything like it did in its earlier years. 
  I'm sure the really big festivals are in the same boat.  TRF has a blog now that I enjoy listening to.  There are many episodes dedicated to its history and the history of its performers and vendors.

There used to be a booth with books at OKRF and I've seen it at the OK Scotfest in years past.  They had lots of European history in them.  Adding books with garb patterns would be keen.  I know that I've had ideas about my garb while at faires but I can't sew, so I just have to look for items to buy or pay someone to make for me.  I'll add these to my list of PSA's this winter.

Grammercy, you two!

With the age of some fairs it might be neat if they presented a little more of their own history. At MNRF for example Penn & Teller, The Flying Karamazov Brothers, actress Tovah Feldshuh from The Walking Dead was apparently the first queen at MNRF https://mn70s.tumblr.com/post/60871289477/actress-tovah-feldshuh-and-co-founder-george

I think they could probably make it better known the literary connections they have. At least I assume the other big fairs have as many. MNRF has several sci/fi fantasy writers who have been participants like Stephen Brust, Emma Bull, Dana Baird. They tried having some authors readings a few years ago in the "Irish Cottage", but I don't think it got much promotion and only lasted the one year.

Speaking of authors... For fairs that require crafters to sell wares that they make themselves I think a history-focused book shop should be an important exception so there would be a source for Renaissance related research books right there on site for clothing, patterns, crafts and history in general for people who are into the history end.

Grammercy, Lord Argyl.  Here is my PSA asking more events and vendors to rent garb at Renfaires.  Thank you for the idea.  It is one aspect of getting into the feel of being transported back in time that is often overlooked.
