The Canton of Vest Yorvik hosted this year’s Kingdom A&S competition on a wild, windy and rainy mid-November day. A number of Septentrians either entered or set their projects up for display. It seems like every year an unofficial theme emerges—this year, it seemed to be bookbinding, as a book press and some bound books were part of the entries, and a demonstration area was set up as well.
Three entrants competed in the Pentathlon this year: Lady Tarian verch Gadarn, THLady Medb ingen Dungaile, and Mistress Tsivia. The competition was tight, but THLady Medb was declared the winner. Her five entries included cookery (for her dish of Snowe), a sugarpaste chess set, bookbinding, an embroidered sweet bag, and a carved leather book satchel.
