Hello, my name is June. In "real life" I am a
mom and teacher. But, in the context of the Society of
Creative Anachronism, I am Lady Cecilia Bartoletti.
In the SCA, I am known essentially for two pursuits.
First is my efforts to organize and guide the Silent
Heralds of the Middle Kingdom, under the auspices of the
Dragon Herald. Silent Heralds are sign language
interpreters. As the mother of a hearing impaired child,
this is obviously an important consideration for me.
I am also known for my work in lace making. I have spent
the last four years studying Lacis, arguably the world's
oldest lacemaking technique. Recently, I have begun
investigating mezza mandolina, an almost forgotten
variation of lacis.
I am continually astonished, even after all these years,
beautiful patterns can be created by essentially one
simple stitch. These
pages are an effort to share this forgotten art form with
others. If you are interested I also have a blog. You
can find it here.
