It’s that time of year again, everyone that is going to Pennsic is furiously sewing, packing, and updating their calendars with classes, courts, vigils, parties, and get-togethers of many varieties. For those attending their first Pennsic, it can all be a little overwhelming. It can also be a bittersweet time for those unable to attend Pennsic this year.
This Sunday we have our July Barony Meeting at the Washington Blvd practice site. Things get started at 1:00 p.m. EDT, which is also when the Garb Swap will begin. Here is the announcement from Baroness Constance, our Garb Swap Coordinator:
Hello my lovelies!! It’s THAT time of year again. Yesss.. Yes it is!
It’s time for our annual BMDL Garb Giveaway/Exchange!!
Please, bring your garb that doesn’t fit, isn’t your style, or has been sitting around unused just waiting for someone to love.
What’s that? Have you more than garb? Bring that too! Fabric, trim, feast gear, shoes, crafting supplies, toys, anything medieval..etc.
Newcomers (Less than 6-8 months in the SCA) go first, then Everyone else can come help themselves!
It is Sunday from 1pm to 3pm, you can drop off items anytime. The site is the Washington Blvd practice site.
**This year, we’re asking for everyone to also bring an item to donate to Paladin’s Pantry or CareBox Pittsburgh.**
If you have things to donate but cannot make it to the meeting that day, let myself or Liam know and we’ll find a way to pick it up! Constance can be contacted on Facebook or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note, nothing is for sale. This is an exchange, and giveaway.
Immediately following the Barony Meeting, there will be a class for new Pennsic-goers called “So, it’s your first Pennsic” being held by Lord Yoshi and Lord Ronin. This is a valuable class that will give you a better idea of what to expect and what kinds of things you can do at Pennsic. Even if you’re not able to attend this year and would like to get an idea of what Pennsic is like, this class would also be useful for you.
There is a Facebook Event for this here.
We can’t wait to see you there!!
