France Larouche (C) of Glammis teaches Takyra Steinman (L) and Kaitlyn Kirkconnell, Grade 3 students at École Elgin Market Public School, Kincardine, how to string their looms in order to hand-weave their scarves, during Pioneer Day at the school, Friday

It was Pioneer Day at École Elgin Market Public School, Kincardine, Friday, and the Grade 3 students learned how to do hand-weaving with their own looms.

The student used strips of fabric to weave hot pads, and then learned how to re-string their looms and weave with yarn to make scarves.

France Larouche of Glammis led the program, with help from several volunteers.
