Wow, a record-breaking fourteen adults and eight children last night! Up to our knees in babies! :D

The weather is finally warm enough for fighting practise again, and Almaric ran a fencing class out on our front lawn. Inside, Will demonstrated some interesting knots; garb was discussed and worked on; Ulrich worked on his latest set of shoes (and discussed bow-making); Olivia pinned trim; Jen checked out some pictures of garb; and Valonia and Freydis discussed a shared project of making serving tabards for the barony. They're hoping to get them done in time for the Baron and Baroness's visit next weekend. Let either of them know if you want to help sewing them; it's very straight-forward.

Also discussed was seating for the feast; if our recent meetings are any indication, we're going to need a lot!

The calligraphy class is this Saturday at Will's house: 270 Brookside Drive in Kingston (that's just in behind the golf course) from 11-4.

Supplies you'll need: 90 pd water colour paper, gauche paint, ink and tools, brushes, pens to do calligraphy. All of these are available at Michael's.

The meeting next Wednesday will also be at Will's, because we just don't have the space here for twenty-two people (even if some of them are very short, ha ha).

And a reminder: The feast is at Ulrich's house on March 26th, starting at 3 pm.
