Chatelaine Report – October 2018

Things continue apace for our Bhakaili newcomers, who have been enjoying learning where they fit into our Society.

I would appreciate any help people might be willing to give in making new Gold Key garb from the funds Mistress Philadelphia found for us.  I’m hoping to build up our stock of basic garments, so if anyone would like to volunteer to make some tunics, dresses, pants, hoods, etc, please let me know.  I would also appreciate any donations of belts or pouches, as our current Gold Key stock has none of these items.

As winter looms closer, the Black Boot Company will be hosting open activity days for newcomers to meet and learn more about the Society as a whole.
