A and S BMDL on Hiatus

This being the holiday season, and everyone being busy, busy, busy, our weekly A and S evenings will be on hiatus until late January or early February.

Thank you all for attending our meetings, I hope they were fun! I will be scheduling some interesting things next year, like Fingerloop Braiding, Elizabethan Fairies, perhaps another round of Fletching, more on cooking, sewing, largess making — lots to keep us busy.

I hope to see many of you at various practices and events, such as the BMDL 12th Night Celebration. There will be an A&S competition there, and I hope some of you will enter.

Happy All Holidays, may everything be merry and bright, and warm and wonderful!

A&S BMDL – Make and Take – Thursday, Nov 16th

Greetings!

Thursday/tomorrow is A&S in BMDL, and we all will be hand-sewing little sacks filled with lavender. These little things will go into your armor bag, your gear bag, your sock drawer, wherever you need a nicer scent. I will bring material, stuffing, thread, needles, and of course, lavender. Need I mention these make good stocking stuffers for your favorite fighter?

We will be at Victory Pointe Gaming Lounge (and ice-cream parlor), upstairs in the game room, at 1113 Carson Street on the South Side, starting at 7 PM. Come early if you wish, people start arriving about 6:45.

Upstairs is not Accessible, so if you need assistance or have questions, please call or text me, (724-759-3333).

Park safely — they ticket like crazy on the South Side. A best place is across the street in the bank parking lot, open and free after 6 PM.

See you there!

A&S BMDL – Weaving Anywhere – Thursday, Nov 9th

Greetings to the Debatable Lands!

Thursday is A&S in BMDL, and we will be continuing our fiber-fun trend with a class on Weaving Anywhere taught by Mahin Banu Tabrizi. We will build our own looms out of string and small sticks, and weave on them. This is an easy-peasy way to have fun with string!

We will be at Victory Pointe Gaming Lounge (and ice-cream parlor), upstairs in the game room, at 1113 Carson Street on the South Side, starting at 7 PM. Come early if you wish, people start arriving about 6:45.

Upstairs is not Accessible, so if you need assistance or have questions, please call or text me, (724-759-3333).

Be sure to park safely — feed the meter if needed. They ticket like crazy on the South Side. I think the best place is across the street in the bank parking lot.

See you there!

A and S at Washington Blvd NOT on Nov 13th

As this Sunday is the Barony Meeting and Practices with PIE at the Castle in Wexford, there will be no A&S at Washington Blvd. Make PIE, eat PIE, vote for PIE!

Also, I am looking for an indoor location for us to meet, so please keep your eyes open and let me know if you find anything around. Examples of places on my list so far: Panera (but no privacy or reservations); Stoke’s Bar on McKnight Rd (private room available); JoAnne Fabrics (unused classrooms, reservations needed); Tech Shop (East Liberty (on bus routes, probably free).

So, looking for: anywhere central, easily accessible by bus, and free or low cost. Let me know of any ideas!

Thanks, Elss Augsburg
