Lady Arabella De Mere has been involved with the Society and the East Kingdom for over 20 years now, with Pennsic XXVI being her first event. She has a passion for fiber arts, specifically tablet weaving, and enjoys exhibiting her projects at A&S competitions and teaching at events and at Pennsic University. She is always happy to talk fiber and share tips and techniques. She is currently serving as the A&S officer for her local shire of Nordenfjord, as well as the Deputy Minister of A&S for the Central Region.
Arabella is nominally from 16th century Italy as she joined the Society as part of Household d'Mer, but she enjoys partaking in many different cultures and time periods.
She has been known to answer occasionally to "Jingles".
Arabella is married to Matthias von Würzburg.
Arabella is a student to Mistress Vienna de la Mer.
