Reenacting is a fun and rewarding hobby. Whether you portray famous historical figures or your own fictional character, reenacting is a form of time travel for those of us who feel they were born in the wrong era. However, reenacting can be overwhelming and very expensive. I hope through this blog to help those new to the hobby, or even those veteran reenactors, to enjoy reenacting without breaking the bank. Blog posts will address things like developing your character, traditions and etiquette for different time periods, and affordable but accurate clothing options. So step back in time to days gone by...

Sewing History

Next week marks the 150th anniversary of the start of the civil war, or should I say 'war between the states' because there wasn't nothin' civil about it!
I am a member of the PSRS which was tasked with recreating the orginal flag that flew over Ft. Moultrie when Ft. Sumpter was fired upon.
I was blessed to be able to sew on this new historic flag which will fly over Ft. Moultrie for the next couple of weeks during the reenactments of the battle which began the civil war.
I worked on this for nearly a week.
Next week I hope to post pictures of this very flag as it waves in the winds of future history over Ft. Moultrie.


  1. Spring Blessings to you!
    Beautiful job you've done sewing this flag.

    150 years....that's a while.

    God bless,

  2. what an honor to be part of sewing that flag. You have done a beautiful job. And you are certainly right - it wasn't "civil" at all.

  3. I've was just awarded the "one lovely blog award" and I am now passing it on to you. You can get the award off of my blog at:

  4. The flag is beautiful. I know you are sharing the sewing with others, but do you have any idea how many people are working on it and for how long? It's so exciting to get to do something like that - how cool is that!
