Introduction

AKA: Eydis of Stonemarche


I have been involved in the SCA since 2004. My primary interests have been in Heavy Combat, Embroidery (especially in telling modern SCA stories through bayeux tapestry style work), and in learning enough about recreating medieval clothing to keep up with my 14th cen. crazed husband's desires for persona appropriate garb. ;)

Persona

Alheydis is the daughter of German merchants who settled in Riga after its inclusion in the Hanseatic League. Not one to be content with the life of a merchant, Alheydis took up the cross to campaign against the pagans and Rus of Novgorod. Having fallen in with a crusading order she quickly became their most zealous convert, earning the nickname 'the Evangelist' for her tireless efforts to convert those not familiar with the 'Ways of the Dude'.
