So I am gearing up for Pennsic, the event of 10 centuries.

Pennsic is somewhere between a historical renactment and a Renaissance Faire that everyone’s in on. It’s camping, for two weeks, with 10,000 of your closest friends. It becomes it’s own city. It has a Mayor, roads, restaurants, a mall, a university,parties…Ohhh the parties. Everything my little history-junkie heart could want.

As this will be my seventh(already??) year to this annual event, I have decided to give back to the community, and namely the Pennsic University. Yes, I’m going to be teaching a class(possibly two). I’m nervous, but determined.

So I’m writing my outline right now for “Period Apparel for Penny-Pinchers”. Basically, how to make historical clothing on the cheap, something which I’m pretty good at.

Wish me luck!
