As the eventing season draws to the close, Artemisians are beginning to think about projects to keep them busy during the long snowy nights of the winter. In an attempt to inspire as well as educate, the Shire of Stonegate brings you Fall Collegium 2019 (hurray)! There will be classes (yay), there will be games (yay), there will be competition (Wait what?). Yes, ‘tis true a special competition just for you …. And a few of your closest friends. This year, we are starting a semi-annual (we hope) tradition of a team competition. We invite all who are willing, brave and able to stay up long hours with little to no rest to compete in the…
ARTEMESIAN GOLDEN THIMBLE (boom boom boom).
Other Kingdoms have tried this (OUTLANDS) but not with quite as much pizzazz (ARTEMISIA)! The rules are as follows. Teams of 4-5 will gather Friday night to prepare to make an entire kit (or thereabouts) of garb. Artemisia being ever diverse in period and culture, is allowing two count them TWO categories. Pre 14th century & 14th century + later.
Teams will bring uncut fabric and supplies with them. Outlets, tables and chairs are available for those bringing machines.
