Feb sewing dates: Thurs. Feb 6th and Sat. Feb 15th

The next sewing circle is Thursday Feb 6th starting at 7:30. The location is 1105 Shady Avenue in Point Breeze. There are two ironing boards, two sergers, two regular machines, and an embroidery machine. But wait; there’s more. There is a second SPECIAL sewing date. The theme: Sewing machine cleaning and oiling. Did you know, your machine should be cleaned and oiled for every 8 hours of sewing? If you are like me, you may have not done this ever. Lord Owen has lots of experience doing this maintenance and will be there to teach you how to clean and oil your machine. You and your machine should come Saturday Feb 15th between 11am and 4pm for a spa treatment (for the machine). This will also be held at 1105 Shady Ave. If you have questions you can contact me by email to: sewing at debatablelands dot org, or send email to Hara Kikumatsu. You can find the e-mail address in the dark pages. There are two cats so medicate appropriately.

A&S and Bardic Championships at 12th Night!

Just a quick reminder that both the Baronial Bardic Championship and the Baronial Arts & Sciences Championship are at 12th Night on Saturday!

Any Debatable Lander, or gentle who’s been awarded a friendship (green) Comet is eligible to win, although anyone can display/perform. The new Champions are asked to represent the Barony at the Seven Pearls Champions’ event in the Rhydderich Hael after Pennsic, and to run the Championship next year. They are also asked to display the regalia of their achievement and to stand with us in Baronial Court, if they prefer.

We can’t wait to see your arts!

In Levitate et Caritate, and Cheers,
Baron Brandubh and Baroness Hilda

And here’s a little more about each Championship:

From Lady Argentia, current Baronial A&S Champ
Call for entries for the Baronial A&S Display! Show off your latest creations or your current study obsession. If you’re wearing it, just leave a card with what it is that says to see you. Also, it need not be a tangible thing! Are you really into early astrology and divination? Do you have impeccable table manners for an Angelo-Saxon? Can you tell us the signs farmers looked for to know it was safe to plant their seeds? Perhaps you’d just like to set a period table? If so, do a little write up and maybe bring some source materials for us to peruse. It counts! Even a work-in-progress can be put in the display. We want to see your works! Please enter by 1pm.

From Lady Beatrix, current Baronial Bard
Calling all bards!!    Join me, Beatrix, your Baronial Bardic Champion at Debatable Lands 12th night.  
I will be hosting this year’s competition, but more importantly, we are going to fill the hall with music and poetry and merriment all day long.  Open Bardic Circle from 10-12 and again after 2pm. 
Please join me on my cushions and carpets with your favorite song book to share your talents.  All are welcome to join in the singing, playing, recitation and any other performance art, regardless of skill and talent (or confidence).  Let’s sing together and make a joyful noise.  
If you want to participate in the competition, there will be a sign up from 10am to noon and the competition to perform for Their Excellencies will begin at 12:30.    There are no particular rules, but please limit your performance to 5-7 minutes to accommodate all interested participants in the allotted time. 
See you there!
