Ruckle Park and Weaving an Earth Banner

On Sunday I went down to Ruckle Park on Salt Spring Island for “Ruckle Park Days”. The weather was beautiful and it was a marvelous day.

The 4Hers were there with their animals…

There were nails to be pounded

logs to be sawed

butter to be churned

wool to spin and to weave

Saori weaving founder turns 95 …

Misao Jo is the founder of Saori weaving and has been weaving every day for over 40 years. In Japan they just celebrated her 95th birthday with a BBQ and an exhibition of some of her works.

You can see more information about her birthday exhibition here (under ‘What’s New’ click on Gallery and then the entry at the top about Misao Jo) and her birthday celebration here.

She still weaves every day and shares Saori weaving with others.  What an inspiration!

Happy Birthday!

Happy Weaving!
