The Barony of Calafia is extending the invitation to all that would love to come, spend the afternoon, and show the public why Calafia and the SCA is such a wonderful place to make friends, learn, and create.  Artisans and creative Gentles in Calafia are invited to bring items to display. If anyone has something to bring, we will have tables, space, and shade for showing it off. Anyone is welcome to bring their own shade structure, especially those that look period.  It would be lovely to have some classes and demos available as well, so if anyone would like to teach (even a short class) or demonstrate a craft, it would be most welcome.

Summergate Anniversary and Longsword Tournament is this Saturday, April 25th at the beautiful Buddy Todd Park in Oceanside (Buddy Todd Park, 3000 Mesa Drive at Parnassus Circle, Oceanside 92054). Calafia’s Arts and Sciences Point is extending an invitation for the populace to come relax under the shade of the Arts pavilion; whether you have a project in the works, or just want to hang with other Arts & Sciences minded people, come on by!

Besides bringing any largesse you have for Their Excellencies to Arts and Sciences Point on Saturday, don’t forget to bring your looms as we are also hosting a Cardweaving Solar on Saturday! Weavers of any skill are invited to warp up and join us for a day of weaving! This isn’t just for card weavers; if you have a loom, bring it! Curious about card weaving and always wanted to try it? We will have a few loaners on site for folks to try their hand.

We are postponing the Quilt Competition we were planning on hosting at Summergate until after Potrero. This will give everyone more time to finish their pieces at their leisure and enjoy the lead up and flurry of activity before War! We will resume the rest of the competitions after May.

Don’t forget! This Sunday, April 12th at 2pm is Calafia’s second Largesse Project Day! We will be presenting Largesse to Their Excellencies at closing court at Summergate Anniversary, so this is the perfect time to make something.

If you have largesse you would like to work on, you are welcome to bring your materials and join us. No ideas of what to make, but you would like to help out? There will be muslin, needle and thread for making bags. Have a project you need to work on and you want company while you do it? Come join us! We also have lists of ideas for largesse that were compiled with the help of Baron Guy Rand and Baroness Murrien.

Feel free to bring snacks and drinks and let’s craft!

We will meet at 2488 Historic Decatur Rd., Suite 160, SD, CA, 92106 at 2 pm.
We hope to see you there!

15 days to send in your class proposal for Potrero War!

There are 15 days left (April 20th) until the deadline to get your class or arts activities into the Gate Book for Potrero War 2015! Please don’t hesitate to get your proposal in! (Any classes submitted between April 21st and May 11 will have the class information at Arts and Sciences Point only.)

If you are planning on teaching at Collegium, I would be delighted to hold your class again at Potrero War. (Hey you will already be prepared!) Wishing you were able to do a “Part 2” for your Collegium class? I am happy to schedule it for Potrero War. Contact arts@potrerowar.org for any questions.

Wishing you could meet other people doing the same craft you are? Looking to exchange ideas about your craft, or just have someone to geek out about it with you? Host a craft/skill circle! You don’t need to be an expert and you don’t need to be able to teach; it is just a fun get-together with like-minded artisans. Arts and Sciences Point is looking to schedule some craft circles. You can schedule it at the Stone Tables or at a location of your choosing.

If you are interested in teaching a class or hosting a crafting get-together, you can fill out the form found at http://www.potrerowar.org/events/arts-science.html. If you are teaching a “Part 2” class or hosting a craft circle, just add this information to your description. You will be notified as soon as your proposal has been received.

 

Thank you and I am looking forward to a great War!

Arts and Sciences Point at St. Artemas Anniversary

Greetings Calafia! We have a couple of Arts and Science announcements for St. Artemas Anniversary, which will be here Saturday, April 4th.

We will be collecting largesse for Baron Guy and Baroness Murrien at Arts and Sciences Point, at both St. Artemas Anniversary and Summergate Anniversary, this month. While at St. Artemas, we will also be holding the next Scrapbook Quilt Competition.

Quite a few of the beehive designs were picked up at St. Isidore Anniversary, so we should see quite a wonderful assortment of embroideries come back for the competition! Please remember that if you picked up a hand drawn design, this is an official competition entry and we are looking forward to seeing your piece returned. It doesn’t matter if you are attempting embroidery for the first time, or this was your 1,000th piece, your embroidery could be chosen for the Scrapbook Quilt of Calafia!

When you arrive at St. Artemas Anniversary, come find Arts and Sciences Point to turn in your finished St. Isidore design. You will be signed in and the voting via People’s Choice will begin approximately 30 minutes after court. If you have any questions, please contact arts@calafia.org.

Until St. Artemas Anniversary, Happy Stitching!
