Workin’ hard for headbands!

On August 13, 2014, I was asked by two very close friends of mine if I could weave some headbands for the opening ceremonies at Sågan Kotturan Chamoru – Chamoru Cultural Center. I obliged, and one of them jokingly said, weave 300! I wasn’t too sure about that, but a more reasonable number of 150 was suggested by my other friend. I agreed that 150 was a more realistic and achievable goal haha. So here are a few pics of the evening as it progressed. 😀  Delirium set in as the sun started rising lol. A big thank you to my friend Lori for helping me on a midnight weaving session and Celeste, Ian and Jonathan for assisting with procuring materials.

Lori and I completed 131 headbands.  Just shy of the 150 mark by 19.  We ran out of coconut leaves, and steam.  Zzzz..

In the end…. I was attacked by headbands!
