  • Taught at Clinton War XL/2005 and a lot before and since.

Interested in handspinning, weaving, naalbinding, knitting, period types of fleece, fibre preparation and wool combing. I do a lot of teaching mundanely as well as in the Society.

I also am interested in, and teach classes on, women in the medieval period (I have a degree in medieval history from the University of Toronto and the Pontifical Institute)and the perception of witchcraft in period - it wasn't at all what most people think!
