Group Description

Welcome to the Inter Kingdom Intensive Needlework Symposium (IKINS) group!

The goal of IKINS is to encourage sharing of expertise, experience, and interest between needleworkers in different geographical locations. We started as a joint venture between the SCA Kingdoms of Caid (Southern California) and the West (Northern California and Nevada) and welcome needleworkers from all areas.

The 2012 Symposium will be held in the Los Angeles area, at Los Coyotes Middle School in La Mirada during the weekend of April 14 - 15, with fieldtrips on Friday April 13. Cost is $10 for SCA members, $15 for non-members, plus class costs for kits and handouts. Register by Jan 31 to get kits for pre-work.
