Greetings to folks across the Known World,
Here is a copy of my Florilegium article for March detailing what is new in the Florilegium this month.
If you are a newsletter editor and would like to get this article a month in advance so that you have time to meet your various deadlines, please contact me. If you are an web minister, I also have a version of this article written especially for web publication.
If you are on a kingdom or other mailing list, and do not get this monthly article there and think it would be welcomed there, also please contact me. I may simply need you to forward the article to that list each month.
I will be at Gulf Wars this next week. If you are there and would like to come by and chat, please do. I will be camping with my barony between Queens Highway and Ricardo di Pisa Ln. My banner should be out and my device can be found on my webpage. Or catch me when I am teaching my hands-on pewter casting class on Wednesday or Friday.
A Blending of the Past and Present
Over the past thirteen years in an ongoing effort, I have been collecting bits of useful information from various newsgroups, mail lists and articles submitted to me by their authors. In order to make this information available to others, I have placed this information in a series of files I call Stefan's Florilegium.
A copy of my complete filelist is available in most sections of the website. This filelist or any of my files is also available from me by email in either Word or text formats.
If you find a bad link or other problem with the Florilegium website, please let me know. Once I know about a problem I can usually fix it that day but if no one alerts me to a problem it may be months before I notice it myself.
I am always interested in new articles. If you have written an article that would be of interest to others in the SCA, please send it to me for possible inclusion in the Florilegium. Contact me for more details.
