Hello, gentle readers! It’s been a pretty crazy year, in which I have neglected my blog, but now that CoBloWriMo has rolled around again, I’m going to take this opportunity to start writing again. To all newcomers, welcome! To old friends, welcome back!So here’s a brief introduction: Hi! My name is Mem. I’m 25 years old. I’ve been sewing for ten years. I went to undergrad for costume design and grad school for fashion history. I currently work at Plimoth Plantation as a living history educator, where I get to portray a real person from history and demonstrate early 17th century daily life activities to the general public. I’ve also worked at Colonial Williamsburg and the New York Renaissance Faire. I mostly sew for myself, and I mostly make historical clothes (though I do every once in a while go through phases of making wallets and iPad cases and stuff like that too). I also knit, crochet, spin, and embroider, and I love trying out new crafts. My most favourite historical activity other than sewing is dancing and music; I love singing at events and going to balls (I haven’t been to any since I moved to Massachusetts, but I’m hoping to remedy that before the end of the year!).
I’m looking forward to getting back into writing this month, and getting to know my fellow CoBlers! More to come soon!
