I'm also currently garbless which doesn't help. Making a new gown is first on my list once I finish the project for my upcoming con.
Look for your local barony and find their website or chatelaine. Most baronies/shires/whatnot will have a lot of small weekly events (fighter practices, archery, project nights, socials, etc.) so you can still get involved locally without feeling like everything is spread out. (I really miss Caid because it felt like everything was really close to me, whereas I've been in An Tir for the past six months and haven't even made it to a social or project night!)
