The Infamous Bean Count Competition

We will once again have a bean count A&S competition on Saturday with the winner taking home a set of feast gear made and donated by Mistress Helewyse! (Thank You Helewyse!)
So...bring out your best project, documented or not, for everyone to Ooo! and Ahh! over. Also be sure to encourage people to swing by and see all the pretty, fun, and impressive projects on display and vote for your favorite!


We are pleased and sad to announce that we are full up on classroom space this year!
Thanks so much for everyone who will be teaching at Baron Wars this year!
