Sigrid was introduced to the a SCA by a friend who had been a part of it for 27 years. The first event that he introduced her to was The Great North Eastern war 2013. From the very first battle( the Deed) that she saw on Friday evening, she was sold! She immersed herself in research on her persona, time period, clothing and anything else she could learn. For her and her three boys this was a life changing event .
She quickly delved into learning about brewing, sewing garb,researching garb from all centuries, archery and throwing weapons. Sigrid hosts many Stitch and Bitches at her home as well as other SCA activities. Very quickly she became involved in the creation of the Riding of Ravensbridge in 2014 and is still quite active as Chatelaine.
In 2013 at her first event she met her husband to be, Magnus Surtsson. They soon found that they enjoyed making things and selling them. They have become full time merchants at most of the bigger events. Their storefront is named Sigrid and Magnus Leather Emporium.
