Online Sewing Circle – Thursday April 2

Let’s see if we can make sewing circle work online. Sewing is scheduled for Thursday April 2nd. Even if we don’t meet in person, we can meet online. In fact, this may work better for many folks that cannot normally make it in person. I am continuing the Japanese garment topic that I started last month. I am creating online instructions for the making men’s hakama, or pants, and kataginu, or vest. I have also requested a kingdom online room. When I have published the instructions and receive details about how to connect to the online room, I will publish those links to the blog. During the online sewing circle, I will go over the instructions if folks want or just answer questions if that is needed. My plan is to cover kosode constructions short or long next time if I don’t get instructions ready for that this time. If you have questions, you can email sewing at debatablelands dot org, or you can find my email address in the dark pages if you look up Hara Kikumatsu.

The King and Queen Call Gentles to Their Court 3/28, Online

Heed the words of Their Majesties! All are welcome, and technical details are forthcoming. But read below for a list of Gentles specifically called to online Royal Court this Saturday:

Unto grand and glorious Æthelmearc do Timothy and Gabrielle send greetings.

We would like to first offer our condolences to any and all throughout the world who have lost friends or loved ones because of this pandemic. And, to those people across the world fighting the battle of their lives, our hearts and prayers go out to you. We are all cheering you on, and will make what sacrifices we may to halt the spread of this virus.

But, we’d like to do some small thing to give all of our lives here in Æthelmearc some semblance of normalcy. Most of us could use the distraction of an event. To this end, this Saturday at 1pm, we will live stream a court. We apologize for the length of the court, but we will be awarding everything, including our sigils and some back log scrolls. The only exceptions to this list are our peerage elevations.
