- Greetings Mira and other basketmakers!
A member of the SCA household to which I belong forwarded the message
about this list to me. So here I am.
My modern name is Roberta Comstock Lauderdale. I live in
Independence, MO. In the SCA I am Hertha Blair of Froggestow (OL,
etc...). I am in the Canton of Aston Tor, Barony of Forgotten Sea,
Kingdom of Calontir. I have taught basketweaving in the SCA off and
on for about 10 years.
Several years ago (spring of 1997) I learned that there are modern
basket guilds, and joined the Woven Circle chapter of the Missouri
Basketweavers Guild. I also belong to Handweavers Guild of America
and subscribe to several other basket lists via email. I have
recently begun writing basket patterns and teaching basketry in the
I look forward to hearing from each of you and sharing information
about historic basketry on this list.
Please accept my apologies for the delay on approving your message.
It was entirely my fault--I don't recall receiving the notification
that two new members were pending, and I just noticed it this morning.
Due to the high amount of spam, messages from newer members are
checked for content before they're posted. Again, please accept my
Mira Silverlock, OL (SCA)
