I study and recreate clothing, food, and culture of Cairo in 1066. Specifically, I research the Fatimid Islamic period 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. 

I am using the honorific "Sitt" as an alternate to Baroness. "Sheika" is the SCA approved Middle Eastern alternate title for Baroness, however it occurs infrequently in the Fatimid period. In the middle ages in culturally Islamic lands, women of rank were not called by their first names except by family. Instead they were called by their title and nickname. In becoming the Territorial Baroness of Nordskogen, a great and life-changing honor, I have taken on a new moniker. Therefore, I sign my correspondences with "Sitt al-Thullaja", or "Great Lady of the Snowflakes".
