I was pleasantly surprised when after a short time out of the country, I dropped in to Lang Pioneer Village to meet Wendy Cooper, a Jacquard team member. We were going to see if we could trouble-shoot a small problem we were having with the loom. I was called upstairs, and to my surprise the staff was gathered around and handed me a beautiful award along with a gift. While I was traveling their luncheon to thank all the volunteers had passed. It was a total surprise to me to have been awarded the Lang Outstanding Volunteer award.
I have to say, nothing would have happened without the total team. Therefore, at the next meeting I asked that everyone join me for a photo to honour everyone. Unfortunately there were 8 others missing that day. My sincere thanks to Lang, and the entire Jacquard Team.
On June 8, 2016 we will have an Open House to introduce people to the Jacquard Loom, and are in search of weavers who might like to try their hand at being a part of the demonstrating team for the summer at Lang Pioneer Village. Please come and join us to see this magnificent machine, and see if you would like to give it a go!
