I've let our membership lapse although we'd never really been active in it ... I wanted to but it seemed that we just never had any time to really get into it. I think we'll make a better effort this time if I renew (heh, still in our newbie shoes). So, I'm just curious if any other fam participates and how do you find time to create garb, learn, go to meetings, go to events (especially if you have kids of varying ages) etc.

I've never been an official SCA member, though I've been to plenty of events back when I was younger and still single. We were too broke for a long time, and I wasn't sure how we'd manage to make it to many events with the girls so little. Now that they're older, I'm really thinking about getting more actively involved.

We do volunteer at our local Renaissance Faire every summer (for 3 weekends), and that's not so strict about period garb and what-not, but I just spent a little time each day over a few months prior to the event sewing very simple dresses for the girls and myself. And I know that you can find the super-simple (as in, no previous sewing experience required) patterns for all kinds of clothes online.

And if you can afford to, there's always someone selling kids' clothes for the events, too.
