    Would love a kilt in that arctic tartan, both it and the Antarctic tartans are two of my favorites.

    The "eager beaver" Kampers are starting to descend. Drymen Kilts flew in last night, and has apparently spent today touring Craigdarroch Castle (https://thecastle.ca/).



    Meanwhile, in the shop we were busy assembling the handouts and instructional materials for students.

    Patriot Tyne

    When I am feeling rich again (I recently purchased wool Scottish Wildcat and poly/viscose Cladish) I may seriously consider getting some Patriot Tyne. So what is the weight on that, pictured above, and where would I purchase that?

    Day 1 of Kilt Kamp has begun!

    Inspecting a special weave of 16 oz British Columbia tartan.

    All Kampers are crammed into the two retail rooms of
    Freedom Kilts for the initial presentations. For the hands-on, they are then separated into the Traditional Group and the Contemporary Group.
