Introduction

Greetings! I am The Honorable Lady Caera Fitzpatrick, lady wife of Master Konner MacPherson and apprentice of Padrona Caterina Giaocchini who resides in the Barony of Settmour Swamp. My first event was Pennsic 39 (2010) and I can be most often found with my hands full of small child, a fiber arts project, or perhaps 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 do like to spin as I wander about. Please say hello!

I now reside in the Barony of Delftwood in the Sylvan Kingdom of Æthelmearc.

Persona

Dublin, Ireland. Vaguely around 11th C.

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

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 but they are not necessary. Should I be considered for an elevation, a writ would be preferable.

I would be honored to appear before Their Majesties virtually or in person. Please inform Konner MacPherson in advance. Konner MacPherson, my Laurel Padrona Caterina Giaocchini and my former apprentice sister Mistress Vivian de Dunbar all have access to my ICOP.
