Valdisa start playing in the SCA in January of 2010. Her and her husband Wolff Schultz were looking for a family-friendly activity. They already had a lot of friends who did the SCA and were interested in trying it. They never looked back! Valdisa loves "fiber arts," including starting with raw wool to cleaning, carding, combing of the wool, spinning (drop and spinning wheel) and dying it. Valdisal also knows how to knit, crochet, sew, embroider, as well as weave with inkle, card, and floor loom. In addition, she does lamp work (glass bead making), woodcarving and wood turning, and soap making. Valdisa also loves making and donating largess.

Persona

Valdisa plays a 12th/13th century Icelandic persona which is just post Norse period, but typically dresses in Norse garb. She also time travels to other periods including Greek, 12-14 century, and working on an Elizabethan.

What's in a Name

While Valdisa really wanted to have a name that was Norse, she already knew several people who's names were Valdis and she wanted a different version, so she went with Valdisa with the "a" on the end to differentiate herself from others.

Heraldry Story

Mundanely, Valdisa has always really liked lotus flowers and dragon flies and want to incorporate her mundane into her SCA life.
