Event details
Greetings to all who read these words,

The great Pennsic War looms!  Is there a seamstress or tailor among us who does not struggle with clothing self and household? Or wrestle with fitting problems, piles of mending, and banners with too darn many laurel leaves? Come join us in the solar for an afternoon of good company, good food, and good advice for your tailoring issues. 

In addition to the solarium, or open area where all may work while being entertained by musicians and storytellers, there will be a smaller class area where we will offer specific project assistance, such as stitching fixes or fitting help.

We ask all attendees to bring an item of any size or type for the potluck.  Contact Lady Vika Grigina z Praha at lurking.girl@gmail.com to coordinate.  Alas for our handwork (but good for our spirits) the site is WET. 

We will not take pre-registration for the event, but we’d appreciate an RSVP (to nedlnthred@gmail.com) so we can plan resources accordingly. 

We also encourage you to bring your excess fabrics and trimmings to sell or trade.  You know you have things in your stash that you will never use.  Now is your chance to clear out your stash.  We will have an area in the hall for these materials.

Musicians and bards who are interested in performing, please contact the Autocrat, Baroness Elizabeth Talbot, at nedlnthred@gmail.com.

Entertainment Challenge:
We challenge all to prepare a tale of adventure, from either the sagas of history, or your own past, to tell before the assembled at luncheon.  Please rehearse your story enough that you can be heard over 4-6 large tables, and time it to 7-10 minutes.
