Please contact Doroga Voronin. Non-traditional scrolls are welcome (objects/etc). Online awards are also welcome.

14th-16th century English/Italian/French are my most common personas, and I love period pieces.

More Information

Elena is a fiber arts/research junky. She is a dabbler in lots of styles of embroidery and lace. Fashion history is a bit of an obsession of hers, with a special focus on the 13th-16th centuries. She also enjoys tablet weaving with various techniques, as well as spinning, making cord, and dyeing. In mundane life she is an academic with a background in medieval and renaissance culture.

She is a huge supporter of the rapier crews The Handsome Boys and The Carolingian Calivers!
