Art:

Please remember to be thoughtful and careful about where you take your weavings. If you aren’t going to be gone the entire break just leave it at home. Those of you who have made it to the middle line and don’t know how to weave the flap, just wait. If you have started weaving the flap and finish it, just wait.

Have a great break!
