Autumn Gathering

November 23, 2013
River's Bend

Kelso & Longview-Cowlitz Counties, WA

Autocrat: Elizabeth Kincayde & Magda Murdoch of Derhirst device4618OP
Greetings to the Citizens of Antir!

The Shire of River's Bend is once again hosting the annual Autumn Gathering now in it's 7th year. This year's theme is OWLS....whooooo will win the Chess Championship this year?  Whoooo will win the Arts and Science Competition??  Whooo will win the Subtlety contest??  Well, you get the idea...have fun with the theme for your entry in the Arts and Science  Competition and the Subtlety contest!!! We have a new location this year and it is all on one level and is right across from the lake, so there is a wonderful area for fighters - heavy and rapier. Perhaps even thrown weapons, all depending on weather of course.
Classes: 
 Many do have attendance limits, so please send a note to Magda (e-mail purpleflutterby28@yahoo.com)  in advance if possible so she can let the teachers know how many students to plan for. Please be prepared to pay instructors directly and in small bills only so they don't need to make change.

A class in wire weaving is also coming, details TBA.

SCHEDULE (class ending times approximate)

Long arm cross stitch is a variant of plain cross stitch, and was used throughout Europe from at least the 1200's on. While it is a little tricky at first, it lends itself well to a variety  of uses and is a very sturdy stitch. Students will learn a bit about its history, and see some period and SCA period examples before learning to work the stitch with a small class project.
    Long arm cross stitch is a component of Assisi work, and students wishing to take the Assisi class in the afternoon will find this class very helpful to them.
