Who We Are and What We Do

We are the Embellishers of An Tir. Amongst other things we do embroidery, needlework, painting, leather decoration, wood carving, burning and painting, bone carving and more. Any citizen of An Tir can join our Guild, and any member of the Guild can challenge the Guild Ranks.

We have a lot of fun at what we do. Come join us, and join the party!

Our Next Meeting: September Crown

Our next meeting will be at September Crown, 2013. THe meeting will be at 10 am on Sunday in the Kingdom Arts and Sciences Pavilion. Directly following the meeting will be the challenges class, which should be fairly short. At 1 pm we''ll hold challenges, also in the Kingdom Arts and Sciences Pavilion. If you wish to challenge at the event, contact Dame Madrun, our challenge deputy. The meeting will be simple, we'll discuss the changes to the guild guidelines, current happens, and the upcoming Challenge Challenge!

Class for Regional Deputies at September Crown

We will be holding a class on running challenges for regional deputies at September Crown. The class will be held on Sunday, directly after the Guild meeting at 10 am (so around 11 am). The class is to help get challenges going in the guild, and to help guild members rise in guild rank through those challenges. If you can't attend the class, we will also offer the class, via the internet, shortly after September Crown (date still to be decided). Commensurate with this will be the posting of the guild membership data (finally!) and challenge data. Look for it soon!

A New Contest: the Challenge Challenge

We challenge you to submit and complete as many challenges as you can between now and 12th Night! We are making a big push to get some of our members to Artisan level, come and be one of them (or at least get closer to it)! For more information on the contest see the Contests, Displays and Projects page.

Thank you Mistress Arlys, who served as our Rivers Regional Deputy!

Our regional deputy for the Rivers area, Mitress Arlys, has resigned after almost 3 years of service to pursue other fun aspects of the SCA. We offer a huge thank you to her for all the work she has done for us! The new Rivers regional Deputy is HL Khanzara of Samarqand. Welcome Khanzara!
