Lady Amalie was kind enough to teach a tablet weaving workshop for us, while visiting from Southron Gaard. Tablet weaving was very popular for much of the middle ages for creating decorative ribbons and braids. It's great for modern re-enactors because you can weave beautiful, historically-accurate bands with limited materials and space, and without a specially-made loom. (In today's class we tied one end of our braids to a chair and the other end to our belts).
The SCA is us — you and me doing what we do. But who are we, what do we do, and how can we support each other to make the SCA the type of organization we can be proud of?
On the 24th of July 2009, the citizenry of Ildhafn invaded a local Auckland radio station. Well, to be more accurate (since it was 7am when we had to be there) no actual invasion took place. More correctly, the hosts of BigFM invited us to come along and be part of their Friday breakfast show and to talk about who we are and what we do.
Much hilarity ensued, and Ildhafn's foray onto the airwaves was deemed a success by all involved. A recording of the proceedings is available here, and pictures can be found in our gallery! (Click on the image below to be taken directly there)
