Mid May I was in Rocky Mountain House for the Centre for Rupertsland Colloquium, giving a paper on distinguishing loomwoven from fingerwoven sashes. We toured the Rocky Mountain House National Historic Site. My ‘faux assomption’ sashes are featured in the display!
Thanks Virginia, for the great photos!
Last Wednesday I participated in the St. Boniface Museum – Manitoba Living History event, “A Visit with the People of Red River”, leading children in the “Fingerweaving Dance”. Photos were taken, and I am hoping to have a few to share with y’all soon.
June 8, I’ll be at Lower Ft Garry for a booklaunch party, coinciding with the Antiques Road Show.
June 11, I’ll be greeting the folks from the David Thompson Brigade, as they arrive in Winnipeg.
Also on the agenda is a trip to the Handweavers Guild of America’s 2008 Convergence in Florida. Hoping to learn all manner of new technique. Then on to a book launch at Ft Snelling.
July is getting scheduled already. Viking Days in Gimli, Manitoba, will see me naalbinding, tablet weaving, and spranging on Odin Green July 5&6.
July 11-13, I plan on attending the Rendezvous in Old Ft William, Thunder Bay.
In between, I’ll be weaving away, finishing those 8 swatches for the Manitoba Museum, Manitoba Artists in Healthcare, Mon-Wed-Fri in the Atrium of the St Boniface General Hospital, and Tues-Thurs working on private comissions.
