Here is an update on weekly Arts & Sciences Project Nights being held in the Barony of Endewearde as of February 2017. Official announcements for SCA activities are posted to the Barony of Endewearde website. Unofficial updates and discussions by arts & sciences activities coordinators are posted to several Maine public facebook groups and are listed below to help connect people who share an interest in making medieval crafts.

Washington County, Maine

There is a new group of members of the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) meeting regularly in Washington County, Maine. They are holding regular weekly get-togethers on Wednesdays from 7:00-9:00 pm at the University of Maine Machias campus gymnasium. Some projects nights are run as class sessions where everyone learns a craft and works on it for the evening. Other nights people bring a project they are currently working on and keep company with others who are working on their own projects. This is a great place to come by and learn more about the diverse interests of others interested in medieval craftsmanship. Please feel free to drop by and learn more about the SCA.

Please note that availability of space at the University of Maine Machias may fluctuate during the academic year. Please check the Endewearde Master Calendar and the Washington Co, SCA. Sios Thoir facebook group for possible changes to the weekly meeting schedule or location.
