Congratulations to Paul Cook-Giles, winner of the Arming Points!
Congratulations to Martin Pisani, winner of the Livery Badge!
Good morning and happy Friday!
I am hosting my first ever giveaway event! In this sweepstakes you have the opportunity to earn entries to win a set of a dozen Historic Enterprises linen arming points. These are essential items of a good harness, or even functioning soft kit for the 14th and 15th centuries, however often overlooked because they are frequently hidden.
While substitutes can be used, we all know the secret shame we feel using shoelaces when we should be using fashionable linen cord with becoming brass chapes. As points wear and tear, they break. They are one of those foundation items you can never quite have enough of.
And, as a bonus gift, there will be the opportunity to win a second prize! Up for offer is a hand embroidered livery patch, made by your’s truly. I made a prototype of one this last year, and worked out the kinks. I’ve upgraded my needles and my frame. You’re going to get a top notch, historically accurate in construction, patch.
Here’s how it works:
- Like the Facebook Page and receive one entry for the arming points.
- Share the giveaway post on Facebook and receive an entry for the arming points.
- Subscribe directly to the blog here on WordPress by following the blog receives an entry for both the arming points and the patch.
- Support on Patreon and receive two entries for both the arming points and the patch.
- Everyone who currently likes the page, follows the blog, or supports on Patreon receive automatic entries.
The giveaway will run from November 22nd to December 7th. The winner will be chosen by random lottery. The more entries you have, the better chance you have to win! The prize will be delivered as close to Christmas as possible.
Just a reminder, this promotion is a sweepstakes and, in accordance with my Giveaway Policy, no purchase is required to enter or win. Shipping is free within the Continental US. Every prize offered will be awarded. There is no consideration in the selection of the winner, it will be done by random selection of all entries.
