I study and recreate Middle Eastern clothing, food, and culture. Specifically, I research Fatimid Islamic culture in Egypt from 969-1171. I also practice feltmaking and cooking from a variety of SCA periods. Recently I have picked up jewelry making as well.

"Sheika" is the SCA approved Middle Eastern alternate title for Baroness. In the middle ages in the Islamic lands, women of rank were not be called by their first names except by family. Instead they were called by their title and nickname. Therefore, I sign my correspondences with "Sheika al-Kaslaania".
