I have been away for so long I thought I would re-introduce myself because I might as well be new!
I have always loved historical clothing and discovered historic sewing by accident (we may partially blame Acacia whom I met at a reenactment). I really enjoy experimenting and exploring new eras. I am an Art Historian and better understanding clothing and underpinnings really helps you understand art better, or at least so I think. I love to make my own clothing as well, and have always loved vintage clothing, especially from the 50s. Since much of it is very expensive now, I like to try to make my own. Slowly my efforts are starting to look not obviously homemade.
I would classify myself as an enthusiastic intermediate sewer with occasional bouts of panic, which is when I usually appear on the sewing forum.
I used to be a fairly active member, but got buried in school work and vanished. I now defended my PhD (I specialize in Ancient Roman Engineering, ask me if you need to know anything about Roman aqueducts, sewers, baths, tunnels or bridges!) and have a tiny bit more time on my hands, so I can focus on my sewing passion a little bit.

Welcome! You should come on the tour sometime and visit Bath. The Roman baths are amazing!

It is very nice to meet you too! I see quite a few familiar names and lots of new ones.
Frances, I would love to visit Bath. I’ve visited many Roman baths, but none still had water in them!

Hello! It’s nice to meet you! I think your classification of yourself applies to me too!

Welcome back. Congratulations on your PhD! You should definitely go to Bath at some point in your life – it’s a gorgeous town and the Roman baths are amazing. I love your description of yourself when sewing.

Thank you! It is so nice to see you again.
The new forum is a little bit less intuitive to use than the old one, but I think I’m getting the hang of it again!

Welcome back Lygeia, I think I recall your name from the old forum.
Congratulation on your hard earned PhD! I’m impressed and also extremely jealous. My degree is in Mechanical Engineering but I have a love of history too. I didn’t even realize you could get a degree in your specialty.
You must plan a trip to Bath for the baths which are still operational – leaden pipes and all. Plus the costume museum! Stunningly beautiful city.

Congratulations on your PhD and a hearty welcome, back! What an exciting field of study! I wish I could have you on a personal tour of the baths in/at Bath!
