Space constraints at this site make merchanting impossible. Sorry.
We're sorry, this is not a kid friendly event or site. Children are welcome if they are a model or part of team, but be aware that unless you keep them busy there is nothing for them to do. Please make sure your children are supervised at all times by someone who is not working on a team.
There will be an auction of donated fabric and goods to benefit the Barony, or, if necessary, to offset the costs of the event. Donations of fabric, minimum of one yard, or trim, minimum of one yard, are encouraged. A great excuse to clean out that wonderful stuff you just can't find a use for.
