Introduction

Greetings! I am Lady Caera Fitzpatrick, lady wife of the Honorable Lord Konner MacPherson and apprentice of Padrona Caterina Giaocchini. My first event was Pennsic 39 and I began fighting with the 404 shortly thereafter, though sadly it has been a couple of years since I was in armour. When I am fortunate enough to attend an event (real life keeps me occupied most Saturdays), I will most likely be helping, spinning, or both.

My interest in textile arts has only expanded with the inspiration that the Society provides. I am happy to “talk shop” if you have any sort of interest! If you would like to learn how to spin, please seek me out! I usually have some extra drop spindles and fluff with me. I often spin as I wander about, so I'm easily spotted.

Please say hello!

Persona

A Gael of Cork on the island of Éire, vaguely around 11th C.

Registered as Ceara Fitzpatrick, but I usually spell it Caera as I had already gotten quite used to it.

More Information

Spinner, weaver, knitter. Will gladly teach anyone who wants to learn. I dabble in embroidery, calligraphy, illumination, nålbinding and book heraldry.

Since it has been asked of the populace to make their preferences known: I love surprises. Please inform Konner MacPherson in advance. If it becomes too cumbersome to surprise me, I hope my friends will let me know so that I can help.
