Sigrid discovered the SCA in 1992, but did not really get to start playing consistently until January of 1996 when she attended 12th, 13th, & 14th Night due to the sudden arrival of 2.5 feet of snow. She played for two years in the Barony of Lochmere before returning to An Tir for seven and a half years. In 2005, she returned to Lochmere where she continued to play even after moving to Bright Hills. She is working to settle into her new home. Sigrid is a maker and research of material culture around the world and throughout our SCA timeframe.
Magistra Sigrid Briansdotter is a master of her craft (clearly obtained away from home as there were insufficient artisans for guilds at home) living around 1360 in the Lake Mälaren region of Sweden. She has traveled on several pilgrimages and has an interest in the arts and crafts of our world.
Sometimes she is a descendant, a 16th century owner of a wunderkammer.
