“Greetings from Giacinta, Administrator of the An Tir Kingdom Costumers’
Guild,

The An Tir Costumer’s Guild has not planned any rankings, contests or
classes for the Kingdom A & S. But I will be there planning a fun
meeting for anyone interested in costuming, lace making, spinning,
weaving or other such costuming interest. The exact place will be
posted at the Gate, and it is very informal. You show up, you sit down
(or stand, if you prefer) and start working on whatever project you have
brought. Bring any documentation you would like to share or if you have
questions, bring those too! The plan is that this will be very low key,
focusing on the arts and sciences of costuming *not* business.

You can stay as briefly or as long as you like. I will be arriving
Saturday mid-morning. If there isn’t any sign out at the Gate when you
arrive, keep an eye out for one later. I have ’emailed’ the Autocrat
and she knows I will be there and this activity is ok by them.

Yours in stitches,

HL Giacinta da Venezia
Kingdom of An Tir
Administrator, Costumers’ Guild”
