Lady Cordeilla Sharpe attended two Pennsic Wars (36 and 38) as a non-member and eventually became active in the SCA in 2014 (5 years later!) while living in the Barony of Axemoor (New Orleans). She relocated to the Shire of Owlsherst (York County, PA) in June of 2018.
Lady Cordeilla is married to Lord Dirk Sharpe, who rarely makes it to events due to his work schedule.
Pronunciation: kɔrd.i.ˈliə ʃɑrp / cor-DEE-LEE-ah SHARP
Cordeilla recommends that you swing by and say hello to Lord Clippart de Worde at some point.
No specific persona. The garb closet is very eclectic and broad, both in geography and in time period. "Roman in the summer, Norse in the winter"
Cordeilla is learning to speak French and appreciates conversational practice opportunities. Her Duolingo username is "cordelya".
Cordeilla may be available to teach the below-listed classes. At present, she isn't able to travel to events that require overnight stays.
- Three Strand Rope Splicing - One Hour - Would you like your tent ropes to have neat, strong spliced eyes instead of knotty knots with frayed ends? Come learn how to splice an eye in three-strand rope. Each student will be supplied with a short length of three-strand rope and some masking tape. If time permits, finishing options, end/back splices, and join splices may also be covered. Only the technique(s) will be taught. - needs: seating, access to cleaning tools if not held outdoors, table(s) a plus but not required

In Case of Court
Lady Cordeilla prefers to not be given awards at all. If you absolutely must, a private, drive-by presentation is preferred. She does not attend court because previous groups could not manage to refrain from calling on her, despite repeated requests.
Not interested in peerage or shiny hats, and appreciates not being hassled about it.
