About Martha: My name is Martha of Smoking Rocks. I have been in the SCA for about 3 years now residing in the Barony of Smoking Rocks East Kingdom. I’m still working on Persona development. I’d like to be Martha Allgood of Smoking Rocks. I’m working on heraldry as well. My Nana put a sewing needle in my hand when I was about six years old. I definitely don’t call myself advanced, by any means! I sew well enough to get by, but I constantly try to improve my skills. I do a lot of different crafts. I have never met one I didn’t like. I’m a member of Athena’s Thimble Arachne’s Web, and the Soothsayers Guild. This it’s going to be a definite challenge for me.

Her Project: The most difficult part of the Calontir Clothing Challenge has been deciding what to make. I’m torn between a Parti-colored Heraldic Gown versus an Elizabethan Woman’s. I haven’t received confirmation of my heraldry, so Elizabethan I must go. I have been inspired by the Elizabethan ladies patterns from Margo Anderson, and some extant pieces. Because of recent and anticipated weight loss I have not decided if my outer layer will be an Elizabethan Comfort Gown or a Doublet. For that reason, I will be starting on the underpinnings. I have very little garb that I have created for myself, only a Kirtle, Tunic and Viking Apron. I’m not planning for a specific event, but this may possibly be used for my future persona. I’d like to think my was a wealthy Tradesman. I sail along with him. We travel by means of a spelled ship to various times and places…
