Theme:
Welcoming ALL SOUL'S, Hats, Helms, & Headwear!
We will pay special attention to this oft overlooked accessory that is widely held to be essential to the well-dressed Medieval Lord or Lady. To that end, we call on artisans, craftspersons and instructors to share knowledge and skills in the creation of Hats, Helms, And Headwear of all kinds. We also hope to feature fine examples of these in a fashion show.

Announcing the tentative categories for prizes:
Best Headgear made the day of the event (materials will be provided).
Best combat related headgear
Most creative period headgear
Best overall headgear

Closer to the event, we will be asking for volunteers for a Ladies Gallery to help with the decision making. More categories may be added if needed.

Arts & Science Activies:
A&S Classes:
Classes will be held.
We currently have two confirmed, but are looking for more, and prefer classes based on our Headgear theme, although other worthy classes will indeed be welcome. Class coordinator is Abbess Katherine von Schlosserwold(Kathy Westburg)
