Maskisina: A Guide to Northern-Style Métis Moccasins is a follow-up to the highly successful Wapikwaniy: A Beginner's Guide to Métis Floral Beadwork. Much like Wapikwaniy, Maskisina guides readers, step-by-step, on how to create their own moccasins. It contains detailed full-colour photographs along with each step and also includes a DVD tutorial. A fascinating historic overview of moccasins by Sherry Farrell Racette begins the 47-page how-to guide. Patterns for cutting the correct sizes for the soles and vamps are included in the book. Authors Gregory Scofield, Amy Briley, and Sherry Ferrell Racette offer their unique perspectives on the skills and techniques required in the creation of Northern Plains moccasins. Offering details about supplies required, preparations, sewing, smoothing seams and pleats, cutting the heel, cutting the trim, and sizing make this a valuable resource for the beginner and the experienced craftsperson. Alternative stroud cuff options are included in the manual. Highly recommended for secondary students and the adult learner.
