The Clothier's Seminar is an annual event that revolves around the one necessity that 
we all need, clothes. Come join us for a day of classes, discussion and camaraderie. 
It is an excellent time to show off your finest garb and accessories. Simple clothing, 
complex clothing, exotic clothing, it's all welcome! Whether you have never sewn a 
piece of garb or have been doing it for years, there's something for you. It's also the 
perfect place to learn what your persona would have worn, and why. Even if you 
don't sew, it's a great way to find people who can make garb for you.
