More Information

I am an avid embroiderer. My current primary interest is blackwork, but I also dabble in gold work (both laid and underside couching), free embroidery, German brick stitch, drawn thread work, and canvas work.

I greatly enjoy fashion history, with a special focus on Elizabethan and 12th Century.

I also enjoy tablet weaving with various techniques.

I picked up spinning a few years ago and very much enjoy it. My current weirdest experiments have been with cat hair and milk fibers (individually, not all on the same spindle).

I also do viking wire weaving, which I absolutely adore.

One of my current goals is to start with raw wool and make a period dress, but that will have to wait until I get a larger loom.

I am a huge supporter of the rapier crew The Handsome Boys and am so proud of their accomplishments at Pennsic 43!
