About me

I am an over the hill chubby archaeologist specializing in archaeological textiles, burials and jewelry. I'm working on my masters in Archaeology and Ancient History and hope to go on to teach at university or community college. I'm a historical re-enactor in the Society for Creative Anachronism where I 'm known as the Dread Viscountess Seelie. Although I do own several floor looms I'm a passionate multiple rigid heddle weaver and use my rigid heddle loom to do my re-creations of archaeological textiles.

I am a teacher
I teach

basket weaving and multiple rigid heddle weaving - anything that you can do with a four harness loom, you can do with 3 rigid heddles.
