This is a DRY site, by county law. Buildings are handicapped accessible. The grounds are not wheel chair friendly.
Looking for a chance to volunteer? TRM are looking for retainers! Sign up here.
For those who will be bringing children not their own: There are TWO forms that you will need to bring for each child. They both need to be signed by the child's parent or legal guardian. ONE MUST BE NOTARIZED per Indiana law.
1) This form needs the notarization and should be kept with the child at all times: http://www.sca.org/docs/pdf/treatminor-notary.pdf
2) This form is the usual Minor Waiver: http://www.sca.org/docs/pdf/chldwaiv.pdf.
PLEASE have both these forms filled out and signed/notarized where appropriate for each child you will be bringing that you are not the parent or legal guardian of. This requirement is out of our control and the children affected will not be allowed to attend if they are not completed properly before arrival. Thank you.

Please list ingredients for people with allergies. No perishable items like cookies. TRMs need to be able to transport items home and store them.

Introduction to the Pole Lathe by Lady Sarah of Sternfeld
I will introduce people to the tools that would have been used. I also encourage attendees to try out the lathe. As far as who can attend...anyone can. Those who want to try...I think 16 is okay with approval from a parent or guardian and of course adults. (The tools are sharp and accidents happen.) This is a show and invite class, I love it when I have participants.
Making Felt Dragons & Other Largess Projects by Lady Katrin Grimsdottir
Learn how to whip stitch and blanket stitch craft felt into fun projects perfect for favors and Largess Derby entries. Katrin will provide handouts, embroidery floss, fiber fill, and precut felt for needle books, scissor fobs, and little stuffed dragons. A $1.00 donation will be appreciated for each project. Thisis not a class designed for children. Any children that attend MUST be accompanied by an adult.
Mathildis's Toolbox: Taking the Next Step by THL Mathildis la Libraire (formally Arrantxa Idazle Irunekoa)
A catch-all sort of class about taking small steps to improve your work. Come pick Mathildis' brain and learn things that aren't already covered in other classes you may have taken. Want to try gilding? Maybe how to use a dip pen or cut a quill? Have you ever test-driven a scrap of vellum or perg? Perhaps you'd like to improve your work with period margins? Whatever you want and we have time for, if Mathildis knows it, you can learn it.
Make and Take Bone Sewing Needle by Aveline de Ceresbroch
Learn how to make your very own bone sewing needle! Bone sewing needles have been used since the dawn of time (or at least the dawn of garments!) and were avidly used up through the 18th Century throughout the world. Participants will be given their very own bone needle kit, tips and tricks for working with bone, and have time to work with the instructor to make their own bone needle! (If you don't finish it at the class, you get to take the kit with you to finish it at home!) Class fee $4.
Tassles by Cindy Mak Faraone (Stick) 2 hours
Make a super-easy tassel and enough whipcording for purse drawstrings. One skein of perle cotton makes 2 tassels, and the second skein makes 2 yards whipcording. Purse pattern also included. Fee $4, gentles age 16 and up.
Viking Knit by Brianna the Small
Learn how to do Viking Knit.
Lunch will be $5.00 per person, paid at the lunch tavern. Lunch service will be from 11am to 1pm.
