I joined the Society in January of 1976 in Austin, TX, before it was named Bryn Gwlad, and when Ansteorra was still a principality. Most of my A&S was in early bardic, counted thread work, and bobbin lace. I was an apprentice of Master Gwillim the Smith. Laureled in 1983, I spent years teaching, judging A&S, and continuing to research and make items in different categories. In the summer of 1991, I moved to the BARONY OF Sternfeld in the Middle Kingdom, where I have been busy ever since.
