I received this notice of a workshop that I thought many of you would be interested in.
I have attached a flyer with a description of two workshops we are offering in Alamogordo on Sat., and Sunday, August 21 and 22. We have scheduled it so that anyone coming from out-of-town can drive down Sat. a.m., and leave after lunch on Sunday. Saturday's workshop begins at 12:30, with a break at 2:30 for tea, and then resumes until 5:30. Sunday's workshop is from 9:00 to 1:00.
I hope I will see some of you here that weekend. I think this is a great opportunity for us to expand our knowledge and skills as re-enactors and interpreters of the past.
Please email me as soon as possible if you plan to come, so we will be able to accomodate everyone. Space is very limited! Check out anna's blog http://annaworden.wordpress.com/ for information about her, and put this workshop on your calendar.
