Mundanely Miranda Petticord is a fiber geek who started falling down the rabbit hole in college when her grandmother taught her to knit. She found the SCA shortly thereafter while visiting Ireland and has never looked back. She and her husband (also a Scadian) live with their two dogs and two cats, in a small apartment crammed full of too many fiber tools. She teaches spinning, both spindle and wheel, and beginner tablet weaving with Kathleen’s Fiber Arts in downtown Troy NY on Saturdays by appointment.
