Oyez, Oyez! Unto the Populace of the Kingdom of Caid does the Shire of Heatherwyne send greetings!!! We beg your indulgence to allow us to remind you that there are only 54 shopping days left until Yule and only 15 more days until Medieval Marketplace this Kingdom's newest excuse to SHOP 'TIL YOU DROP and FIGHT 'TIL YOU FLOP..brought to you by your very own local group of fighting and shopping enablers, the Shire of Heatherwyne. This year Medieval Marketplace will be held on Saturday, November 25, 2007 at beautiful Kun's Park in La Verne.
By the way did we mention that there will be both heavies and rapier fighting as well as Youth Combat? In other words. THERE WILL BE FIGHTING!!!
There will be many, many merchants there with their wares on display to excite and entice all Lords and Ladies between bouts and those who, after all, cannot resist a good bargain. This is an event that is honoring the fine Merchants who enhance our events all year long and contribute so much to the kingdom! There will be merchants and artisans (who are often one and the same!) demonstrating and teaching their craft! This is an event not to be missed!
BTW, do you enjoy all things stringy? Then come one come all ... Inkle Weavers, Card Weavers, Fiber Artists ... Beginners, Intermediate, and Advanced! Bring your Inkle or Card Weaving loom and your materials, projects in progress, or materials to start on a new project. If you don't have your own equipment, we'll have a couple of looms that folks can play with during the workshop. If you have a pattern you'd like to try, but want help working or warping it, bring it along! Bring projects you've completed to share with us, bring ideas and techniques that you want to share or learn. New weavers are welcome ... If you've seen folks weaving and want to try it yourself, now's your chance! We'll all work together to weave, learn, and have fun! We look forward to seeing you!
