As many of you may already know, I have left the library world for a while. My job at the MIT Archives and Special Collections was only as a temp so when this new opportunity presented itself I decided to go for it. My new gig is as an independent contractor assisting a seamstress. Sounds crazy, I know. I think of myself as an archivist on a crafty adventure.
I’ve worked for two seasons at King Richard’s Faire helping out the lovely Threads of Time folks in their booth, as well as going on the road with them to a couple of conventions and such. I’ll still be doing that, but I also help out in their workshop and work a little from home.
I was really sad to leave MIT, especially since I had worked there for over three years. It was a bit of a scary decision to make, but it was definitely the right thing to do, and I’m really excited about it.
