The exhibition will be held at the very beautiful and light Orangery and we are hoping that as many of you as possible can participate.

Send an e-mail to with:

*Photo of the item(s)

*Your name and persona

*Other information such as inspiration, process, how it is used

You will be able to leave your item(s) during the whole of DoubleWars up until 16:00 at May 15. During the opening hours of the exhibition someone in charge will be in the room at all times. Most items will be placed in locked display cases.

 You will be able to collect your items after the exhibition closes at 17:00 or later on at the DoubleWars site.

Vendor at the market

Hovdala May 15 to 16

 Now we are looking for those of you who want to stand as market vendors during Hovdala on 15-16 May.

As in previous years, it will be free to stand as a vendor at the market on Friday and Saturday. But you need to bring your membership card with you and be able to show it at request. This is to prevent non SCA-members from participating for free.

NOTE! We have now changed day to Saturday the 16th of May when the various SCA events are to be held at Hovdala.

Hovdala is responsible for arranging the market stalls, so you don’t have to bring your own, but if you wish to bring your own market tent , please provide notification in your registration email.

It is the desire of Hovdala that the notification is made directly to them this year, so I have solved it like this:

To receive the registration email. You first have to send me an email to the address below, I would be very thankful if this mail contains views and ideas about how we can make Hovdaladagen better for you this year.

You will then receive a reply email with accurate registration information and telephone number of the person responsible for the market at Hovdala.


The information at the registration papers saying that it costs money to stand as vendor is incorrect.

Write that you are a part of SCA in the notification to avoid any charges.

Email me as soon as possible:



Hovdala Fashion Show 2015

Saturday, May 16
The time, 15:00 to 16:00

This year we will once again have a fashion show during Hovdaladagen. I hope this year to gather as many examples as possible from various medieval clubs.
We are looking for those who are interested in showcasing your clothes that are historically linked between 600 1600

To participate, take pictures of your clothes that you want to show and write a brief info about the garment and yourself (the photo is for me to be able to make a good presentation order, and for me to be able to do a good overview and do a good go- schedule).

Documentation should include,
*When the garment was sewn
*Which century reflects the garment
*What inspired you to make this garment
*Other curiosities around the garment / when and how you did it

It is possible to sign up until 1 hour before the fashion show, however, no guarantee that you will be able to participate.
Unfortunately there is not any form of compensation for this, it is entirely on a voluntary basis. However, you will have a very nice day with a great market, medieval fighting, music and much more. In addition, a huge thanks from my side that you want to be a part of and rock the heck out of this fashion show.

If you have questions, you are welcome to contact me via email:
Hope to hear from all of you soon!
