Welcome to my little spot on the web for my 15th century persona, Cathelina di Alessandri.
For those of you who have visited me recently at the Abbey Medieval Festival, hello again! You will find additional information about the crafts I demonstrated (and some I didn’t demonstrate) by following the links to the left.
To those who have stumbled upon this page via other means, welcome! I am a living historian in Queensland, Australia and I, along with a group of fellow history lovers, attempt to bring the 15th century to life here in the 21st century.
My main interest within living history are textiles. I’m the one you see reproducing period hand-stiches, braiding 16 strand braids out of silk to make ties for my clothing and spinning with a handspindle and distaff.
