Sewing Circle Summary

We had sewing circle last Thursday with new project beginnings, post-pennsic ironing, and garment rework. The next sewing circle is Thursday Oct 3rd at 1105 Shady Ave. There will be scroll case construction, but feel free to bring other things, if you don’t want to work on scroll cases. Donations of medium sized material scraps or precut cardboard are apprediated; we already have a nice supply to start. If you wish to donate items for scroll cases, but don’t plan to attend, please email sewing at debatablelands dot org to arrange to hand-off. If you would like help with pattern design or fitting you should still reach out to Mistress Ts’vee’a bas Tseepora Levi to make an appointment.

September Food Guild Meeting

Greetings Food Friends!

Visit Restaurant Depot, a members-only chain selling wholesale food, beverages, equipment & supplies for restaurants & bars. * You will be able to purchase items if you want! *
86 35th ST, PITTSBURGH, PA 15201

Look for my black SUV parked at the end of the parking lot furthest away from the front door so I will be easy to find. 724-759-3333 if you need help.

Meet at DeLuca’s for brunch at 11 am

Park wherever you can on the street, then come to Deluca’s. I will be waiting outside in a day-glo orange tee shirt to help with finding the place.

Ever wonder how BMDL cooks consistently provide tasty food for such small budgets? The answer is smart shopping! One of the go-to places is Restaurant Depot, where you can get real bargains.

Visit to let me know if you are coming.

Heritage Fest Demo Update – Setup Time Change

From the Deputy Chatelaine, Lord Ronan:

The time for setting up Heritage Fest tomorrow has changed! Setup will now begin at 9:30am at our designated spot on the map below. (We’re listed on the map below as the Historical Re-enactors.) The front gate at 4734 Butler St. will close at 10:00am so if you need to unload anything from a car make sure you get there before that time. Anyone coming later can still use the volunteer parking lots by entering through the 49th Street gate also noted on the map. 

There will be 4 tables provided for us to use. I’d like two of them to go in the tent for Calligraphy and Illumination, one of them to be used for A&S displays led by the Fiber Guild (including non-fiber art as well), and one to be used for a miscellaneous display of martial gear.

Please contact me with what you will be bringing. I still need tablecloths to cover the tables (6ft long), framed scrolls for display, and any other art you’d like to show off. We will have a few chairs provided to us as well, but you may want to bring your own for comfort.

Sorry for the delay in getting this update out. There was some last minute information sent out and an issue with my contact info listed in the blog, but all that should be fixed now. Thank you for your patience!

As always, send me a message if you have any more questions.

See you all tomorrow!
