    Took this class at the 2013 Winter Camping Symposium. Due to time limits at this event the class was compressed to one day. It was a lot of fun and amazingly, I completed one Moc that day and finished off the pair over the next couple days while at this event and when I returned home. Can’t explain the joy that I felt when I successfully completed the first step in this process; a technique that creates a knot at the end of a thread and needle. Sounds silly, but but I was completely out of my element, so getting through that first step was a relief. Looking forward to using these Mukluks this winter. They turned out better than I thought possible and I am, oddly, very proud of this work. Dave and Kielyn are good teachers!

  2. Thanks Rick! I thought I’d also share this beautiful photo of you in your new moccasins at home!
    Rick Willging happy and looking grand!

    My expectations were met and exceeded, and I am very happy with my new winter moccasins. I enjoyed the class more than I can express, and only wished I had more time to socialize more, with all the interesting participants, who I think created some very beautiful, yet functional works of art. This workshop, I believe, must be very challenging to teach, because each one of us students had different backgrounds, skills, abilities, needs, and goals, yet everyone seemed to be quite satisfied with the class, learned a few new skills, had a tremendous amount of fun, and were quite proud of their finished creations.

    Thank you again, and I look forward to seeing you again soon, if not in Peterborough, than hopefully on a snowshoe trek in the Great Boreal Wonderland of Canada.

    Your friend,

    As a teacher, I am well aware of the challenges of teaching adults. You both rose to those challenges beautifully. You were kind, supportive, and helpful in spite of the many difficulties involved in keeping rambunctious participants on schedule. […] Both of you maintained an ongoing aura of professionalism over the course of the workshop. […] May the best things of the season find you both, and may your business venture continue to thrive and prosper.
    With gratitude,
    Janet
