When joining one of the above groups you need to consider your reasons for joining, as some groups want to be historically accurate (living history), while others like some re-enactment groups are more flexible in their guidelines. Living historians make all their clothing by hand sewing, their tools and food are produced by historical means, While Reenactment groups will hand sew the visible stitching of garments, they may sew the hidden stitching on a sewing machine for durability reasons.
