Wabash HerbFest Demo

This is a mundane HerbFest, but this will be our 5th time attending.
We have a booth there displaying Medieval cooking utensils, sample cookbooks,
and some herbs commonly used in the Middle Ages to display.  We have a little cookbook
of our own to sell (which has done well in the past), selected herbs/spices, and some
pottery/ceramic items. We can have a fighting demo if we have enough
fighters to pull it off — heavy or light weapons.

Regular Shire Happenings

Business Meetings

The business meetings are at 6:30 p.m. on the first Wednesday of the month at the Logansport Public Library.  Official Shire business is usually conducted in the first half or so of the meeting, which includes any event announcements to be made, ideas to be exchanged, and fun to be had!  The second half of the meeting is usually more free-spirited and less structured.

A & S Meetings

The A&S sessions are held on the third Wednesday of each month at the Peru Public Library, starting at 6pm, unless specifically changed .   The topics have yet to be determined for the coming months… so, we are open to any suggestions!!!  In the past we’ve had such interesting classes as:  bowstring making,  naalbinding, fingerlace, leather headbands, etc.  Anyone interested in teaching something should contact the Shire’s MoAS, THL Arianwen o Windham (contact her by clicking on her e-mail on the Officers page)

Sewing/Research (separate from the Dual Shire Sunday Sewing event)  

You can do sewing and/or researching on just about any subject on any Tuesday night from 7 p.m. at Meisterin Katarina’s house, Einhorn Manor — this includes learning how to sew, if needed.  But, please either call (765-472-7217… leave a voicemail if I don’t answer, please) or e-mail ahead of time, to see if there are any schedule changes.


Bookbinding and/or illumination instruction and research is offered every other Sunday afternoon as needed from 2 to 4pm at Meisterin Katarina’s house, Einhorn Manor.
