Black Fish Fillet Pattern Shawl
“Weaving, to me personally, is – as I look at it – weaving the fabric of our lives together. Remembering what used to be, and what is being lost.
I utilize my natural resource, my Mother, (Chetopie Fran James) who has been a spinner of wools for all my life. If it weren’t for her I might not be doing what we are doing.
Time marches on and people don’t do things like what we used to do.
We take pride in what we do, and are glad people appreciate what we do.”
