Fiber date change?

Greetings Wyewood,
Those present at the Fiber Night at the Benson Starbucks last night would like to propose a change in the regular meeting time for Fiber/Threadworkers night from the 3rd Wednesday to the 1st Thursday. We happen to have a pretty good size group in this discussion, including both regulars and some folks who cannot usually make it on its current night.
If there is some reason that this change should not be made please speak to the whole list, not to me personally. I am not the head of the group (I’m not sure we really have a head) but just happen to be taking the initiative with starting the discussion. If I hear silence on the e-mail list and FB I will assume the change is OK and ask our web mistress to put it on the calendar appropriately.
In Service,

Basic Armorial Heraldry

This is a reminder that the first lesson in our basic heraldry series will be at FCS on Friday! It will start at 7:30 and last 20-30 minutes. There will be no handout, so bring note-taking materials if you would like.

This installment will include historical background and uses of armorial heraldry, as well as the basics about tinctures and their use. We may begin to do simple blazon practice depending on time and inclination of attendees.

Esclarmonde de Porcairages intends to have a total of 3 lessons over the coming months.
