Greetings from Dame Catriona MacDuff to the Artisans of the known world:
This is just a reminder that the on-line pre-registration for the Pennsic A&S Exhibition will close on July 31. Please register online if you want to avoid standing in the on-site registration line on the day of the exhibition.
I hope to see all of you at the Exhibition!
The Exhibition will take place on Monday, August 14th. The drop-off of entries will begin at 7 am, and the Exhibition will be open to the public from 9 am until 3 pm.
Pick-up of entries will be from 3 pm to 4 pm. Anything not picked up at this time will be turned over to Lost and Found and can be retrieved there.
All persons displaying are requested to fill out one form per item to be displayed. There is a limit of 5 items per person. The form will provide basic information for each item displayed, including some space for documentation.
Pre-registration is strongly encouraged. This will give us an idea of how many people from the various Kingdoms are participating, as well as the space required. This will also save you time on the day of the Exhibition.
On-line pre-registration: runs through July 31. Use the on-line form to register.
On-site pre-registration: Those artisans who have not pre-registered on-line can do so by filling out a form and dropping it off at A&S Point prior to the day of the Exhibit.
Those who register on-line or on-site will be served with a special Express Check-in Line on the day of the exhibit.
At-the-door registration: Anyone signing up on the day of the exhibit will be helped on a first-come, first-served basis, as space allows.
Tables will be provided for the exhibition. Space limitations in the Barn will require artisans to share table space.
There will be a table space limit of 9 square feet (3'x3') for each artisan. There is a limit of 5 items per person, and these must fit within the designated space. If you require a larger space, please consider providing your own table.
Please bring your own stands, easels, dress forms, tablecloths and other methods to display your work to its best advantage.
People displaying garb have the option of wearing the outfit, in order to display the garments properly.
People planning to stay with their displays for the day are encouraged to bring a chair. Please prepare for the possibility of inclement weather when planning your display, in order to protect your work.
The Barn space will be divided by Kingdom, thus allowing the Royalty, Peers and Populace of a particular Kingdom to see the efforts of their craftspeople more easily. The Queen Consorts of the Known World have been invited to attend the Exhibition. Artisans wishing to hear, or who would like to request the personal comments of the Queens, should take note of the times of their presence. These times will be posted once they are established.
