On Saturday, November 4th, fourteen members of the Barony of the Cleftlands participated in the Mini Maker Fair at the Cleveland Public Library. The event showcased the talents of makers from far and wide. Exhibits included life-sized functioning models of Star Wars droids, a Tesla Coil orchestra, and a 30-foot long fire-breathing metal dragon.
The SCA was given a large room where we displayed and demonstrated spinning, weaving, archery equipment, armor, swords, honey, and the process of turning flax into linen. Outside we gave combat demonstrations throughout the day, both armored and rapier. The event organizer stated at the end of the day that attendance was numbered in the thousands.
