Introduction

Lady Mairghread (Molly) Huntley attended her first SCA event in the Florida Keys (A.S. XXXI) after overhearing "You mean the King and Queen are actually going to make it?!" That piqued her interest and opened her to a vibrant old world.

Years later when brought to Great Northeastern War (A.S. XXXIV) by a group of dear friends did she really fall in love with the SCA and medieval history as a whole, but she didn't dive in fully for a number of years.

Dabbling turned into so much more when the Riding of Ravensbridge started developing into a closer place to play. Since then the hobby took over and became a major part of her life.

More Information

Interests and pursuits include:

  • Tablet Weaving - Working my way through each technique. Focusing on monochromatic twist-twined weaving, double-faced, 3/1 twill, and brocade techniques.
  • Knitting - Mickel inspired me to retry knitting after 30+ years and I love it. Everything turns into a hat, so I'm working on medieval hats!
  • Spinning - I'm trying each and every fiber I can get my hands on - wool, alpaca, flax, nettle, hemp, cotton, bamboo, kapok, corn, dog, human, etc.
  • Embroidery - Starting with blackwork, or, single color work, dark blue on pink linen.
  • Archery - Specifically crossbow!
