I discovered the SCA many years ago as a mundane theatrical costume and set designer working on a period production of Hamlet. I needed period clothing patterns from which to drape the costumes, and I was informed that someone in the SCA could point me in the right direction. They did and my interest was piqued. It wasn't until almost ten years later that I followed up and attended my first event-- an Artisans Row event in the Shire of Hartshorn-dale in the Spring of 2016. My husband, Phelippe le Vigneron, and I have been in love ever since.
Emeline la Chauciere (mka Bethanie Watson) lives with her husband Phelippe le Vigneron on their 14th century estate outside of Chinon where they grow grapes for wine in the gentle hills of western France.
Areas of Interest
I am devoted to developing as a scribe by furthering my calligraphy and illumination skills. I also enjoy archery, embroidery, gardening, and am studying herbalism. Lately, a good deal of my time is devoted to garb making for myself and husband.
