RE:[teacherartexchange] Weaving to Fibonacci

Go to the site above. It's for Billie Ruth Sudduth in Penland, NC (or near
Penland). I visited her with Paulus Berensohn, when I took a class at
Penland a few years ago. She was a school teacher, who turned social worker
in schools and began to teach math through basket making. The Fibonacci
patterns were used by the Cherokee Indians down there. Billie Ruth learned
from them. I was so glad Paulus knew her and we spent the better part of a
day with her. Nice lady. I could have bought one of her large baskets ,
then, for $450. I was stupid; now they are thousands!

Hello Doug,
Weaving is a good lesson to teach and yarn can be bought for a couple
dollars for a big skein. You can make looms of varying size from
regular cardboard. Inexpensive and kids enjoy it. Hey, I've always
wanted to see the Fibonaci sequence illustrated in a weaving...
