Personal Information

Dame Medb Renata of House Corvus
M. Renata Fossett, 1052 Orange Ave. East, St. Paul, MN 55106; (714) 227-5529
medb@housecorvus.org

Date of Birth: August 2
Occupation: License Administration
Joined the SCA: I heard about the SCA in 1978 from one of my high school teachers. We went to the local Renaissance Faire as a field trip and I was hooked. I went to the Faire as often as I could, even after moving to Minnesota in 1980, but I didn't find a local SCA group until later on, in college. I joined the SCA in 1989 and I have been actively involved ever since.
Joined House Corvus: In 1990 I moved to Charlotte, NC with a friend. We met Bran at a baronial council and found he was hosting a calligraphy meeting at his house that week. I had been doing calligraphy on my own since I was 8, so I decided to go. We had such a strong connection that we stayed up until late that night talking. I heard the whole story of Caer Daibhidh and felt that this was where I belonged. I was too shy to invite myself, but luckily Bran finally asked and I joined immediately afterwards. I only lived in Charlotte a few months, but I established a connection that will stay with me wherever I go.
Hobbies/Interests: Traveling, Reading, Calligraphy and Illumination, Archery, Pewter-casting, Lampworking, Juggling, Knitting, Nalbinding, Spinning, Music, Cooking, Camping, and sometimes making Ukranian Easter Eggs.
