The event you’ve wanted is just around the corner in Denville, NJ at the Church of the Savior Episcopal Church, 155 Morris Avenue, Denville, NJ 07834.  This is being held with the kind permission of the Barony of Settmour Swamp.  There will be approx.  20 classes dealing with various aspects of costuming, including (but not limited to) clothing and accessories from specific time periods, textile classes, hand-sewing techniquest and round-table discussions.  Robin Netherton is scheduled to be our Key-note speaker.

For those who know (and those who don’t), Robin Netherton is an independent scholar specializing in costume of the Middle Ages.  Since 1982, she has given lectures and workshops for academic audiences, historical societies, reenactment groups, and writers’ organizations both here and abroad, on practical aspects of period costume as well as on costume as an approach to social history, art history, and literature.  Her research focuses on the development of the cut of European clothing in the 12th through 15th centuries, as well as on the depiction and interpretation of clothing by artists and historians, both medieval and modern.

Her recent article on a proposed cutting method for a 12th century Norman gown, published in the _Costume Research Journal_, was reprinted in the Winter 2002 _Tournaments Illuminated_.

She will also be giving a 2 hour class on the following topics:  The Gothic Fitted Dress and The Greenland Gored Gown (more information available on the website) and the second 2 hour class will be on “Two Gothic Overgown Styles”.  Specifically, Part 1:  Will the Real Sideless Surcote Please Stand Up? and Part 2:  The 15th-Century V-Necked Gown.
