As many of you know, there will be visiting Royals at Birka again this year.  We here at the Gazette have received the following notice to pass on to our readers:

Just a reminder, but Birka is only a few weeks away! There’s still time to display your crafty skills with items for the Royal gift baskets. If you have items, or questions about about something you aren’t sure about, please don’t hesitate to email me.
I’d like to have most items in-hand by Wednesday, January 23rd. If you need to arrange Birka drop-offs, please email me at to coordinate.
The gift baskets are presented to the visiting royals at Birka, and are a great way to show off the skills of the artisans of the Laurel Kingdom of the East to our foreign visitors.  Please consider contributing.
