Rebekah Leib

MisCon 29 Attending Professional

Rebekah Leib is a medievalist & historical re-creationist specializing in the Norse Viking era & Bronze Age Scythian cultures.

Rebekah Leib is a medievalist & historical re-creationist specializing in the Norse & Viking-era as well as Bronze Age Scythian cultures. She has far too many sheep, goats & other livestock running amok on her homestead & is a spinner, weaver, dyer, feltmaker & obnoxiously enthusiastic textiles geek. In addition to teaching various textile-oriented and primitive skills in a historical setting, she has enough hobbies/passions for at least 8 people, has no limits when it comes to learning historical skills, and does not comprehend the meaning nor possibility of "boredom".

When not shoveling manure, fixing fences or shouting at escaped sheep, she also enjoys target and combat archery, arrow-making, sewing linen & wool garments, making glass beads with her lampworking torch, and spending quality time with her horses.
