End of the School Year

Van Walleghem School invited me to come teach fingerweaving to their students during the last week of school. I spent a day and a half working with them. Students from grades 3, 4, and 5, explored the basic fingerweaving method making a ‘wrist sash’. My heart was warmed by a student who said to me, “Nice presentation.”
July 1 is Canada Day. National celebrations everywhere.
I was invited to the Musée de St-Boniface Museum to animate my “Fingerweaving Dance”.
Assisted by my daughter, and accompanied by expert musician D’Arcy Stearns we wove six feet worth of ‘sash’ (12 strands diagonal stripe).

Maybe next year we’ll try for a Guiness record.
