[Who We Are Title]

Elsie Scott Stuehmeyer

This picture was taken on one of the last days of the 2008 Kiltmaking Workshop. I believe that the photographer is Larry McDonald. That's my X-Mark's kilt under her left hand. It was Glenda, at the back right, who addressed Elsie as Miss Elsie, an honorific many of us now use.

Most of the time during the class, Elsie marched up and down with her tape measure looped around her neck. Her tape has a large brass fitting on one end that she constantly plays with - somewhat intimidating, that. And then she stops where you are working, puts one hand on her hip, flips the brass end of her tape with the other and, with a look of exasperation on her face asks: "What are yeh doing that for? Who told yeh ta do that?" Student cringes.

Nah, it's not as bad as all that. She's a lovely woman. I look forward to seeing her again.
