The SCA is a group the recreates the social customs of the Middle Ages. We are a 50-year old non-profit with members around the world. We live in the Kingdom of An Tir, and the Seattle group, the Barony of Madrone, is one of the largest and oldest in what we call the Knowne World. We encompass most of King County north of I-90 to Snohomish bordered by the mountains and Sound. Some of our activities include armored combat with swords/shields, archery, cooking, fiber arts such as weaving/spinning, scribal arts such as Illumination and Calligraphy, metallurgy (including both black smithing and jewelry making), leather working, fencing, equestrian events such as Jousting and Quintaining. For a broad overview of our history, please visit http://welcome.sca.org/.
We have monthly Socials, special-interest groups that hold research and practical project nights, Events in costume (garb), business meetings, and day-long or weekend-long get-togethers. We do occasionally have Events that are open to the public, which will be included on this calendar.
This group's purpose is to provide an introduction, a centralized calendar of opportunities to check us out and get involved, and resource to ask questions to learn more and figure out if this might be something you would be interested in.
