The Shire of Hartshorn-dale (Blue Bell, PA) invites one and all to A Day in the Solar: Saturday, June 8, 2013 1:00 P.M. to 8:00 P.M.

Come and enjoy a day in the solar. Work on some embroidery or your hand sewing of garb. An area will also be set up for those doing more modern garb work (sewing machines). We will also have an area set up for those who wish to practice a more period experience; an “enchanted ground” if you will, where no modern equipment (other than what the site has for us in electric lights, etc.) will be in evidence. Another area will be available for guild meetings. Contact the event coordinator (email at the end of this article) to schedule time for your group.

All those folks doing hand work and socializing will need some entertainment, and we hope that musicians, bards, story tellers and entertainers will join us to amuse and be amused. Food is being provided (John Marshall atte Forde is our head cook) but attendees are welcome, nay invited, to bring things they want to share. Desserts will particularly be welcome. There is no site fee, but donations will be gladly accepted to help defray costs (should donations exceed costs, they will be donated to the church that so graciously allows us to use their facilities).

All attendees will be asked to sign in and either show proof of membership or sign the waiver. Since there is no fee, pre-registration is not necessary, but if you know you’re planning to come, a note to the coordinator (email address below) will be appreciated for planning purposes.

Questions about food are encouraged to be directed to the coordinator before the day of the event.

The event is at St. John’s Lutheran Church, 1802 Skippack Pk., Blue Bell, PA 19422 near the intersection of Rt 202 and 73, slightly north of Norristown. See the event announcement on the East Kingdom website for detailed directions.

The coordinator for this event is Elizabet Marshall who can be contacted at kandyflingATgmailDOTcom.
