Show Notes

The linen sale ended, but it’s still great fabric if you’re looking to make some garb. Maybe dye it with period dyes to learn more about how clothing was made?

I’m incredibly pleased to say that we’ve exceeded our second goal to assist Sayyida Laila with getting a new wheelchair. We’re pressing on, however, because we’re hoping to get her something motorized. If you have anything you can contribute, even a few dollars, it would be so appreciated. As you’ve heard in this episode, Laila is a treasure among the Knowne World Courtesans and it’s our pleasure to help support one of our own.
