Two out of kingdom teachers are planning to travel to Winter Kingdom and are
willing to teach classes.


Baroness Caroline de Mercier, Baroness of Shattered Crystal in the Middle
Kingdom will be traveling to Winter Kingdom with the Honorable Lady James
Ainsley.  Baroness Caroline has an hour or hour and a half long class on
Storytelling that she would like to offer to teach.  She has taught this
class in the Middle Kingdom.  Lady James and I have two classes to offer.
The first is a costuming class on skirts that we taught at the Clothier's
Seminar in Calontir in February of this year.  This class is 1 hour long.
The second class is on 16th century hats.  It is 2 hours long and we taught
it at the For Hands event in the Middle Kingdom last month and will be
teaching it at Clothier's Seminar in Calontir in February.


Yours in Service,


Lady Cicily Bridges
