Last Week

Countess Jane ran an A&S workshop on Planning a Garb Project. Books of period artwork were flipped through, fabric was examined, and many ideas were discussed by all. Were you inspired to begin a new garb project? Bring your work in progress to a future craft night to show it off!

Isles had a lovely Yule party, hosted by Lord Paul and Lady Gwen. Food was eaten, drink was drunk, and songs were song. Thank you to everyone who came, and those of you who couldn’t were missed.


This Week

Starkhafn Yule is on Saturday. Anyone going?

There will be no Craft Nights or Fighter Practices until after New Year’s.
