Ottawa - Days 4 & 5

Saturday in Ottawa was another grey and rainy day, which made it a great day to spend beading. Maria taught to classes for the Ottawa Bead Society. In the morning the class was for diagonal weave and swag necklaces. In the afternoon is was a variety of "V" necklaces, everything from the basic single "V" to the new Pearl Drops Crystal "V". Everyone had a wonderful time creating something new.

Today dawned sunny and bright. Maria and I went to Sunday service at St. John the Baptist Shrine. The service was in Ukranian, so I did not understand it, but it was a beautiful church and service. We then setup for Maria's presentation about contemporary Ukranian beadwork. Over 40 people attended the presentation. They also had a chance to purchase a selection of Maria's kits, patterns and books.

Tomorrow before we head back to Toronto we are going to check out a few of the other bead stores in the Ottawa area.
