Your Excellencies, greetings from Annetje van Leuven,

I hate to bother you with such short notice, but I'm hoping you can help. I'm
attending a woodcarving class in Berea, KY this weekend, and my crash plans fell
through. Would you know of anyone who could put me up Thursday night on my way
through? I had originally thought to try requesting crash space in Dragonsmark,
but no one responded. I found a host through Couchsurfing, but she's had to go
to St. Louis so I'm now scrambling. I've had recent health issues that really
screwed up my budget. The class is non-refundable so canceling isn't a great
option. If someone in your Barony could offer space for a single night for an
SCA traveler, it would be deeply appreciated.

A little about me:

I will have been in the SCA for 20 years this September, though my husband (who
joined a month before I did) and I were less active during a handful of times
due to real life. We were both active in Grey Gargoyles for several years
before
decamping to Wisconsin and becoming part of Northshield. We're currently
members
of the Barony of Caer Anterth Mawr.

My passions are music (I'm one of those choral vocalist types) and research of
all kinds.The areas I most enjoy (besides music) are art, architecture,
illumination, cooking, carving, clothing, heraldry, archaeology, cartography. I
just love exploring history.

I'm not so much a maker as a finder/pass-it-along type person. I have tons of
fabric and enjoy patterning, but don't sew with great ease. I do make wargame
terrain
though. I'm somewhat martially inclined - I met my husband fencing (back before
it was legal in the Middle) and we've both studied Western Martial Arts, though
I can't
do either anymore (age and weight have taken their toll).

My regions I like cover pretty much all of continental Europe, and I'm curious
about
Japan since some of my friends explore that (plus, thanks to my nephews, I got
hooked on anime). I'm most interested in the history of 14th-15th century
Burgundian
Netherlands, late 14th century Bohemia, Kalmar Union Scandinavia, and a bunch
of
stuff from around 1300. I'm also interested in Viking/Baltic culture as well,
but
don't research it in the SCA since that's my mundane heritage and I had to study
it
in school. Kind of made me rebel. (I've been to quite a number of exhibits
though,
and have an uncle and cousins in southern Sweden.) Still, I enjoy seeing it
recreated well. Maybe I need to work on an alternate persona.

I'm allergic to tobacco and strawberries.

If this helps you match me with anyone, that would be awesome. I know I'm
asking
a lot and definitely understand if no one is able to put me up. I thought I
would at least ask.

Thanks much,

Andra Keller
