Irish Celtic Visitors/Clothing Info

Poster: nancy lynch <lughbec@erols.com>

Greetings from TH Lady Lughbec ni Eoin and Lord Conchobhar 
Having only a short time to visit your fair Kingdom of Atlantia (in 
Baltimore, MD)we are desirous of gleaning information on the gatherings
and period entertainments to be found here and within a couple hours 
driving time through the month of June. Then we return to our home 
Kingdom of the Outlands (Greeley, CO).

We would greatly appreciate a copy of your newsletter, the Acorn, and a 
map of everyday place names with the SCA names.  Please let us know how 
this can be achieved.

Also, I have compiled a 12 page documentation of Irish Celtic clothing.
Included are complete outfits garmenting both a 9th Century Nobleman and 
a 15th Cen. Noblelady.  These documents include info and drawings of the 
fuan, leina, crys, truibas, mantle, camisi, the Shinrone gown, caille, 
and some notes on personal adornment. 

I am willing to *trade* these to any interested persons for other 
costuming information (of any culture), book lists of period information 
pertaining to any of these subjects; blacksmithing - archery - 
metal casting - needlework - fencing - or Irish period anything, Irish 
recipes or songs, or anything you are skilled at that I may want (and 
don't know it yet!). Our interests are varied and we are always looking 
for fertilizer for our garden of knowlege. 

It is my ambition to continue learning of period costuming and 
specialize in Irish clothing.  I have been a theatrical costumer for 
over 20 years (ack! has it been that long???) specializing in period 
pieces.  I love the research and ornamentation and I also love teaching,
 so....anyone out there having any information that could assist me in 
my quest, please, let's get together!  Learning is such fun!

We are glad to be out here in your beautiful Kingdom and look forward to 
meeting many of you while we are here.

In Service to the Dream,
THL Lughbec ni Eoin
