|Come and enjoy a day in the solar. Work on some embroidery or your hand sewing of garb. An area will also be set up for those doing more modern garb work (sewing machines). We will also have an area set up for those who wish to practice a more period experience - an "Enchanted Ground" if you will of no modern equipment (other than what the site has for us in electric lights, etc.) Another area will be available for guild meetings, contact the Autocrat to schedule. |
All those folks doing hand work and socializing will need some entertainment, and we hope that musicians, bards, story tellers and entertainers will join us to amuse and be amused.
