Event Report: The Golden Seamstress Competition, 2004

By Lady Corrina Van Rensealer

Her Majesty Susanna the Unyielding opened the competition at 11pm Friday night, then left site to have a good night’s sleep. Then we all went to work. There was much laughter and a lot of production. Thanks to the excellent service of the event staff, we had no worries of hunger or thirst, they brought out food and drink every hour. They also supplied us with a hot breakfast and lunch. There was also music playing in the background for our enjoyment.

After a long 18 hours the competition was closed at 5pm on Saturday evening, which was followed by a one-hour break, which was used to get the models ready for the fashion show and final judging at 6pm. After the fashion show there was another small break and then Royal and Baronial Court were held in wait for the judges to get their results worked out, in which time they came back into court to provide us all with their results.

First of all I would like to say that we had a lot of fun. This competition took place Friday, March 19, 2004 and Saturday, March 20, 2004. Here is a list of all the competitors
