|Laverne Waddington addressing a group in Sacramento CA on Weaving in South America|
|Members and guests of Sacramento Weavers and Spinners Guild listening to Laverne.|

Laverne had to sit in the back of church with her laptop plugged into the church projectors. Laverne speaks very clearly, and is adept at pronouncing the names of products, peoples and tribes in languages that reach back hundreds of years. When she speaks English she has a little trouble when her Australian accent gets in the way of her tongue.
|After the video presentation, Laverne answers a few questions.|
After the pictures and videos Laverne sat down and answered questions. It was a wonderful presentation and I'm grateful that Sacramento Weavers and Spinners Guild invited her to come to Sacramento. I'm also grateful to Generations Church in Sacramento CA for letting us use the meeting room for the evening presentation. Special thanks to Darren for hooking up the projectors and microphone for us.
This coming Saturday and Sunday some lucky weavers will have a two day workshop in Backstrap Weaving taught by Laverne Waddington.
It was a good day!
