The Baronesses Catherine-Aimée, Gwynnyd and Iasmine of Roaring Wastes invite you to show us your costuming skills

For the sixth year, the seamstresses of the Middle Kingdom will take up the challenge to create a complete set of garments, from the skin out, in eighteen hours.

Twenty teams of from 1 to 6 active members are to start at 10 PM Friday and continue to 6 pm Saturday.

Team members are expected to remain on-site during the competition.

A tavern will be available on Saturday for lunch and dinner, sponsored by the Canton of Brackendelve.

 

This event is autocrated by

Baroness Genevieve

Duchess Arabella

Laurels:

Laurels may work on teams. We encourage Laurels not on teams to attend and serve as consultants-at-large to the various teams or as judges.

Merchants:

Space constraints at this site make merchanting impossible. Sorry.

Children:

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.

Auction:

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.
