The women are very talented. They have completed classes before and make some beautiful things . The classroom is sparse and I wish I had brought so many more things with me. I like the people I have met Justin from NACA and Diane, who is the senior instructor of the fur production and design program here at the Nunavut Arctic College. I miss my workshop and the familiar machines I have. We worked on patterns the first day. I encouraged the women to make fancy fronts on the first bag we make. At the end of the work day we had a look at the sewing machines . The women were right in there checking them out , moving them around, some of them won't be suitable and the thread is soft cotton instead of the strong nylon I use.
Meeka , who was taking part in my workshop made this coat.
