Artist’s background: Elisapee grew up in Clyde River area. She loved to play outside all day like the rest of the kids in those days. Her mother in law taught her how to crochet in the early 70’s. She now makes baby hats, adult hats, scarves, purses/bags and floor rugs with lettering of names and communities on them. People seem to love her work for it’s precision and ask her if she has time to show them how to do it. She used to coach people in crochet lettering projects, but more recently she just works on her own projects.
