Personal Information

I am known as Her Ladyship, the Honorable Maîtresse Sabine du Bourbonnais, daughter of La Familia Parentiara, member of the Whyte Companie of St Michael, friend of the Louvain Household, resident of the Barony of St Florian de la Riviere and citizen of the Kingdom of Lochac.

I attended my first SCA event in 1995 and since joining the SCA, I've had the opportunity to try my hand at many creative pursuits - costume designing, sewing, embroidery, leatherwork, fabric stenciling, pewter casting, jewellery design, banner painting, metalwork, canopy construction, hall decorating, cushion making, calligraphy and I know not what! The opportunities for creative expression in the SCA are limitless, and many of us eventually turn our hands to a wide and varied number of different fields over the years.

Since joining way back when... my most enduring interest has been in the areas of Heraldry, Heraldic Display, Pageantry and Heraldic Design. I enjoy employing my efforts towards working on the visual aspects that enhances the atmosphere at our events which helps us suspend the stressors of modern living and imagine ourselves living in the middle ages. My interest in heraldic display has permeated it's way into most of my creative pursuits over the years, which can be seen in most of my projects. I've spent quite a lot of my efforts over the duration attempting to increase the display of my own personal heraldry, as well as encouraging my Family, my Household and my Barony to do the same.
