Mom's Only Sewing Needle




Baker Lake Elder Elizabeth Quinangnaq tells a story of her mother's only sewing needle. While sewing a kamik sole, her mother dropped her only sewing needle on the ground, Elizabeth, her older brother Jacob Ikinilik and younger brother Thomas Anirngniq looked for the sewing needle and never found it. So Jacob Ikinilik had made a sewing needle from an old saw blade.
