What is a guild?
A “guild” is a collection of persons with similar interests. Guild activities are not considered “official” gatherings of the SCA, and the content on their Facebook groups does not represent the organization as a whole.
Bjornsborg is home to a variety of guilds which mostly communicate on their respective Facebook groups (below).
Guild activity is currently irregular due to COVID-19. As activity stabilizes this page will be updated with more complete information.
