12th Night Staff

Sad news

A member 0f our populace has requested that the following be shared:

Members who have been part of the group for more than 10 years may remember my mother in law, Lyn Parkinson, who was known to you as Lady Allison DuTours.

EDIT: A picture of Lady Allison can be found here.

Lyn passed away last Sunday and we would like to share her obituary.  It can be viewed here in picture form, or at the website of the listed funeral home.

Lyn loved SCA and her time with it.  She eventually became unable to participate but it brought her great joy.

It is possible that we may have books or items that may be SCA appropriate. If you believe that there may be any possible interest in those things please let me know.

Woodworking January 19th

The next Woodworking Guild shop day will be on Sunday, January 19th, from 10am to 2pm. This is the day after Baronial 12th Night. The shop day will be held at Ishiyama’s home (1105 Shady Avenue, 15232).

The current plan is to spend multiple shop days this spring working on projects that take longer than 4 hours. You can work on whatever you want, but the main purpose is for us to work together making things to sit upon. Chairs! Stools! Benches! Sturdy boxes! We’ll all help out with research, planning, shopping for wood, and technically tricky bits. For this first workshop, you don’t need to bring anything other than your dreams of a persona-appropriate period-looking thing.

The hope is that we can all get something done by Pennsic, and then we can all sit at the Barony meeting on something other than a folding chair, looking awesome.

Sewing Circle Thurs. Jan 9th

January sewing circle is Thursday Jan 9th starting at 7:30. The location is 1105 Shady Avenue in Point Breeze. This date is before kingdom and baronial twelfth night. If you have last minute sewing or ironing, feel free to bring that to the house. There are two ironing boards, a serger, a regular machine, and an embroidery machine. If you have questions you can contact me by email 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.
