A decent turnout for the shoe-making workshop: seven adults and four kids, including a visitor, Garth Lescaudron, from Seashire, who had a very nice pair of Norse shoes already but who wanted to replace them.

We made duct-tape patterns for Valonia, Ulrich, his kids, and my two kids. I provided a hand-out to show how to make the shoe once the pattern was in hand (I've attached a copy of it here for anyone else who's interested). Once we have leather we can progress to the fun stage of sewing them up, either as a group or individually.

Ulrich also brought along the bow he made; pictures will be in the Projects page shortly!

Mikhail, Almaric, and Ulrich discussed metal sources and needs for armouring. Mikhail showed off Ulrich's dishing stump, which now has a dishing bowl carved into the top. Mikhail has already made a couple of knees on it, which he showed and discussed.

Almaric has managed to secure us the Community Room in the Greenwood Sobey's for the first and third Wednesdays of each month, starting in January (same time). Please note that Feb. 17 will be at another location, the same as the off-weeks, probably someone's living room. We may be able to get the room for each week starting April; we will know once they do up the schedule for the new fiscal year at the end of March.

Two more weekly meetings before Christmas! Well, our Christmas feast, anyways. :D
