Jacquie McLeod

Red River Metis from Winnipeg.  I started beading and sewing about 20 years ago, more extensive beading the last 5 years. I have loved Metis beading and handmade work since my early years, I used to sit with my grandmother while she worked at her old pedal sewing machine, she made the family clothes and many other items. We lived along Lake Manitoba with no running water or plumbing, what a different lifestyle than today. I miss sitting with her in the quiet or going out picking berries with my aunties and cousins or sitting with a picnic at the lake drinking camp tea.   When I bead today I think of these old times, and especially my grandmother Mary her kind and humble ways and her creativity in hard times. I have her to thank for any recognition I receive for my beadwork.
