|Award & Office Badges|
Greetings! I am The Honorable Lady Caera Fitzpatrick, lady wife of Master Konner MacPherson and apprentice of Padrona Caterina Giaocchini. 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!
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. I would be honored to appear before Their Majesties virtually or in person. Please inform Konner MacPherson in advance.
