Several women with scissors in hand and fabric draped over tables before them gathered at the large meeting room at the Lac Courte Oreilles (LCO) administration building over the weekend of April 14-17.
There was not a sewing machine in sight as the ladies weaved a needle and thread through cloth. Nearby were three dresses of the same design from three different eras: Pre-contact made from deer hide, a European-contact version made of red wool and a modern version featuring large Ojibwe floral designs made from cotton velveteen.
