Re: need craft ideas - Weaving (Sharon's bags)

Thank you, Kristen, for bringing up Sharon's weaving project. I do have a
link on Incredible Art Department and a WONDERFUL handout from Maggie
White - however - IAD is offline today (boo-hoo). I can give you the link to
Sharon's lesson (I'll jump through a couple of hoops to find it for you)
Ah! YOU are in luck! The Weaving lesson from Bunki is one of the three older
middle school lesson I have on my machine - here is the link:

My other choice was to access through Sharon's site - but I don't have my
link's page available on my site today.

Hopefully - the weaving handout will come back online for you --IF it
doesn't ask me for it ( If you need it today by all
means DO email me.
I'm not working at all on the sites today so I do have time for your emails
(I just don't have time for hundreds of virus email - I guess I better say
my prayers a little harder). I'll work on the sites again when they come
back online. I'm still doing stuff for hubby but can take breaks from that.

Anytime you need Sharon's site I bet it would come up in a Google search,

P.S. Folks - do not send a reply to me with just a subject line of "Thank
you" - that is the most popular virus email I am getting right now. Add my
name to the subject line. Whoever created this virus does not know my name -
but you do. Thank you Getty ArtsEdNetters for doing this small favor for me.

P.P.S. for Kristen. The only thing that is an attachment in your email is
the horizontal line bar. I remove it when I reply. I can't tell you for sure
what to do because I don't know what you are doing that inserts it. I just
click on it to delete it. Somehow the line must be graphic of sorts.

Some of the folk arts could be considered crafty...I did that drawstring bag
woven on a cardboard loom with 9th and 10th grade girls this summer at a
camp, and they loved it. I got the lesson off IAD I think or someone gave
me the link. Once you get them going, they don't need much help. If they
worked hard, they got a bag done in 1.5 hours. (a small one, about 3"x4")
