Nest ffynnon

Location: Calanais Nuadh, Calontir

Category/Level: Modern Recreationist/Intermediate

About Nest : I’ve played in the SCA since 2004. I am an accomplished seamstress, and should probably be judged fairly strongly in that department. I am trying to up my game at sewing, meaning smaller, almost invisible stitches. I am a complete novice at woodworking and leather working. I have taught numerous classes in sewing, beading, and basket weaving at shire meetings, events, Diamond Wars, Lilies, and Gulf Wars.

Her Project: A simple, hand-sewn t-tunic of linen (embellished with heraldic embroidery, if time allows), a cloak, and a leather ring pouch. (Three sewing entries). Also, a wooden break-down box to hide a modern cooler. I am 8th century, a keeper of a holy well in very rural Wales. These will *appear* to be period pieces, but include a few non-visible liberties such as pockets. (Welcome to the Modern middle ages!) The box will be a variation of a six-board box made of plywood, using modern (electric) tools. The variable is a seventh board as a shelf below the cooler. May also include heraldic device.
