Naomi bat Avraham has been in the SCA since 2002 and lives in the Shire of Hartshorn-dale. She was drawn in by the archery but found many other interests, mostly in the arts and sciences. Her main interests are currently woodblock carving and printing and researching the history of European printing. She has also found an interest in East Kingdom history and helped with the East Kingdom 40th anniversary history display. In 2011, she put together and ran a Pennsic history display at Pennsic 40. In 2015 she was honored by being chosen as the King's champion of arts and sciences for her project on the history of European woodblock printing.


Naomi is a young Jewish woman living in 15th century Germany. Her father is a Hebrew scribe so she grew up around words and books. Her husband is a printer, and uses the relatively new printing press and movable type. She carves woodblocks to illustrate the printed books and often helps setting type and operating the press.
