Largess Competition: There will be a largess competition in the form of a Dirty Dozen. Entrants will make a dozen identical/similar items (i.e. 12 bracelets, pouches, favors, etc.) The winner will receive one of each of the entries and the rest go to the Baronage for largess.

Open Display: Show your beautiful works without judging. These can be works-in-progress or finished pieces. If you wish to get feed back from the populus, you can leave a small note book with your entry.
