Our school is located in a remote area of Alaska that is full of rolling hills, rivers and lakes, and an abundance of wildlife from birds, moose, caribou, bears, and more. The families of our students live on the abundance of wildlife for their survival.
My students live in a small, tight-knit Alaskan community with the love for the outdoors.
We experience some of the coldest weather in the state. Families teach their children how to enjoy the outdoors all year long.
My students enjoy creating their own native beading projects. We are in need of more beads and needles. The color selection is becoming very limited in what we have. Students are wanting more shades of colors as well as sparkly beads to use in their projects.
Students need a larger variety of colored seed beads like the Crech Seed Bead Opaques in dark red, orange, bone effect, chocolate brown, pale blue, pale turquoise, pale green, petal pink, and other colors as well as size 10 needles.
Students are eagerly beading necklaces, bookmarks and bracelets. Many have tried loom beading and brick stitch beading.
