Join the Shires of Darkstone, Mistig Waetru and Skerjastrond for a relaxed weekend of fiber art fun, A&S experiences, and archery, in the Great Northwoods!

The winds of summer are fading and it’s time to get ready for the winter! The Northern Clans have gathered to converse, meet in fellowship and share their skills before the long cold winter. Join us as we celebrate the harvest, sheep and fellowship. This is an A&S themed event where the focus is fiber, however anyone who is looking to demonstrate their crafts, or just looking for a great weekend to get away and play, then this is the event for you. The dye pots will be bubbling all weekend with the hope that we can dye some amazing colors in fiber! We welcome cooking, blacksmithing, or anything else as well, site is very accommodating! In the evenings look forward to roaring fires, good food, the songs of bards, and drums sounding us off to sleep.
