This Saturday: Take the Train to Northern Craft Day

As previously announced elsewhere, the Crown Province is hosting a Crafts Day on Saturday, April 8 from 11 AM – 3 PM, just north of the city in New Rochelle, easily accessible by MetroNorth, and it would be lovely to see some members of the canton up there.

Hands-on activities will include painting fabric heraldic banners, as well as period tabletop games, leather crafts, calligraphy and Illumination.

There’s a MetroNorth train on the New Haven line that departs Grand Central at 10:05, stops at 125th Street & Park Avenue at 10:15, and reaches New Rochelle at 10:40; additional trains follow every thirty minutes. (The train costs $8.50 each way.) From the station it’s just a two-block walk to the New Rochelle Public Library, where we’ve reserved the meeting room.

This event is free. All are welcome to join; no Society membership or previous experience required.

Period clothing is welcome, but entirely optional; come as you are.

No food is allowed onsite, but there are a couple of casual lunch spots within walking distance.
