Six adults and six kids (including Ulrich’s girls). Andrew and Jennifer Newton showed up again, they used to come out but have been away for several months, they are coming back to meetings again. Andrew brews period style ales and beers and we talked about brewing and chatted with Ulrich about having some brews available at the event, it would provide nice atmosphere and the period brews are a much lower alcohol level than modern beers. We talked briefly about building a stall for it.

Andrew also worked on a cloak pin, he is carving it out of wax then using it to form a clay mold and he and his wife will pour metal into it for it to harden. (she is a jewelry maker).

I worked further on my leather shoes. Both soles are attached now. (Although the left foot is tighter than the right, lol). Ulrich and Maeve chatted about archery, she showed him her bow and her custom made arrows. Ulrich and I talked about medieval furniture and things we would like to build. Velonia worked on a head dress ( I completely forget what it is called, you will have to ask her.).

Thanks, Almaric, for the write-up!
