Many years ago a friend of mine saw the Halloween costumes I made for my sons and said, "If you like making costumes, you should get involved with the SCA." I took the bait and the rest is history!!!

I joined the SCA in late 1991 - Raven got me involved mainly due to my sewing skills. The first activity I attended was an armor workshop in Waynesboro, PA. Following this, I participated Cub Scout Blue & Gold Banquet Demo in 1992.

Mundanely, I taught art for 35 years at middle school (16 yrs.) and the rest of my career was at the high school level. I taught for a local program for children called Arts Express every summer for many years, on many different subjects (2013's class was mask making). I am also an art merit badge counselor for Boy Scouts, and I am a Master Gardener outside of the SCA (but I enjoy discussions about historic gardening as well).

More Information

Scribing is one of my favorite things to do, with my first scroll being done for April, 1999, with many more made since then. I also enjoy taking classes on just about any subject, and dabble in many other arts, except the performing arts. Example of my work can be found at the East Kingdom Scribal Gallery and my Facebook page under Barbara J Peshkin (mundane name).
