      The Scriptorium is composed of all skill levels. The Scriptorium is
      open to anyone who is interested in any aspect of the scribal arts.
      You do NOT have to be a member of the shire to participate in the
      Scriptorium. You don't have to be an artist. You don't have to

      calligraphy. Experiment and do what you like. You don't have to
      buy anything. We are a friendly group and share our supplies. Of
      course, if you get hooked like we did, you'll want to get your own
      supplies. From time to time we hold classes to teach various
      aspects of calligraphy and illumination. About the only request

      SHOE IN

      Sunday March 26th

      For the Shoe-in I'm planning for the end of March, I'd like to see a
      gathering to work on, think about, plan, share tools and techniques
      and generally have fun with shoes. I will be happy to provide
      whatever guidance I can and am interested in sharing what I know and
      learning whatever anyone can bring to share with others. Bring your
      leather, books or just yourself and questions. I'm not doing this
      to sell anything so I won't be able to provide raw materials, just
      in house tools, books and advice. If you have any more questions,
      contact me at:

      920 N 3rd Avenue
      Maywood, IL 60153

      The Incipient Shire of Foxvale has been asked to provide a demo on
      medieval life for a home-school group in Joliet. The date of the
      demo is Thursday, April 27th. The timeframe they have given us is
      10:20 am - 12:15 pm.

      This is a church-based group; the first part of the time block is
      their devotional period, during which they suggested we do a segment
      on church history. The remainder of the time will be class and
      lunch. The class we will be addressing is about 20 students in the
      3rd-4th grade range; the more 'hands on' the presentation, the

      We will be demonstrating armor (construction, at least, and perhaps
      a bit of actual fighting if a marshall is available), dancing and
      games. We hope to have a variety of arts, crafts and sciences as
      well, depending on the skills of the good gentles who join us.
      Heraldry would be most welcome, as the students will be doing their
      own coat of arms projects. We have inquired about archery, and may
      do some cooking in conjunction with lunch.

      Anyone interested in participating in this demo should contact
      Berngard (called Moose), Coordinator of Demos & Displays for the
      Incipient Shire of Foxvale at danceswithwords42@.... (mka
      Dori Becker) and are urged to attend Foxvale Moot on March 21st
      (www.foxvale.org for details and directions).

      Information about the school group and their location is available
      at www.jaccinc.org
