Proud Moccasin Owners from Georgian Bay Secondary

Our Philosophy: The following booklets describe our understanding of a variety of traditional crafts – these skills and this knowledge has traditionally been handed down from person to person and now we are attempting to do the same. We have worked hard to produce these packages and hope to be able to continue to offer them freely in the years to come.  If you find these instructions useful please acknowledge where you received some of the info. If you’re also considering making any of these crafts, please consider supporting us by purchasing one of our handy DIY kits. Thank you and Happy Crafting!

“I made some mittens with the LOTN pattern and thought I would share. The material is braintan buckskin I tanned and I used buckskin thong (with a welt) to sew it together. It’s the best pattern I’ve used. Thanks!”
