Sara’s past adventures in the SCA includes assisting at working at Troll, Security at Pennsic, Disability Carts at Pennsic, Guarding the Royal Encampment, serving as Baronial Minister of Arts & Sciences, and other mischievous volunteer opportunities. as they have arisen.

Sara has many names registered within the Society, with her own reasons.

Sara Nayl Bendare  (registered): (aka Sara the Nail Bender) Earned at her first Pennsic, ask her she’ll tell you the story some time. Which is why she used nailbender as part of this site’s domain name.

Sanada Tatsuko (registered):  I obtained since I joined a household that does Japanese reenactment and is the predominant garb choice I now wear (hence the .ninja part of the domain name  ).

Sara Giglsworth of Wigglesworth (registered) is a nod to her mother’s short stint playing in the SCA. Sara with some friends has created a Scribal Household known as The Giglsworth Academy of Wigglesworth  (registered) also known as the Giggleswick Scribes of Wigglesworthe.
