  • Konstantia is sponsoring two A&S competitions at Horse and Falcons, for Most Detailed Heraldic Kit and Best Banner/Heraldic Item. If you are interested in judging, or donating something to the prize basket, let her know.
  • "Greetings, all! As most of you know, I’ve been making painted linen wall hangings for almost a year now. Many folks have expressed interest, and asked questions on how I made them. They take about 3 months to make, so it isn’t something I could just whip together. Unless I’m making one, I wouldn’t be able to demonstrate – and, as quite a bit of it is a messy process, it isn’t something I could easily do at an event. With that in mind, I’ve decided to make a third painting. This one will be a bit smaller, but still quite large – so there is demo opportunity! The linen is ordered, the frame is almost done, my garage is accessible, and the rabbit glue will be waiting! This Sunday, February 19th, from 2-5pm, at my home, I will hold a demo on these paintings. We will stitch the linen onto the frame to prep it for sizing, whip up a batch of rabbit glue, and give it a good sizing! Afterward, I will give a hands-on demonstration on how to process an egg to prepare the paint, and will have some squares of pre-sized linen available for practice. The materials can get a bit costly, and if anyone would like to donate to the cause, it would be really appreciated. If you will be there, please let me know so I know who is coming and to make sure not to begin without you, but be on time if at all possible. I’ve made an event page, but as my address is on it, it is set to private, so you’ll need an invitation – just let me know if you want one. YiS, Lady Adelaide Sarsfield"  Editor's note: the referenced event page is on facebook. If you are not on facebook, contact her for the address.
