> Hello Maureen and Suzanne and Everyone!
> THANK YOU for offering a SignWriting Workshop in the UK on August 27,
> I met with Maureen Doyle and Suzanne Pach today on Skype....It is great to
> meet you both face to face ;-)
> Suzanne and I worked together on SignPuddle today on Skype. I read
> Suzanne's writing of BSL signs, by reading the writing of the signs
> "outloud". In other words, I produced the signs...I did the
> signs...exactly as they are written, without knowing the meaning of the
> signs. This is an excellent way to be sure signs are well written - when
> someone who does not know the sign language, can produce the movements
> correctly based on the SignWriting spelling...and Suzanne's writing is
> really good and I could read every sign!
> And then Maureen and I discussed our two non-profit organizations and I
> learned a lot about how non-profit organizations function in the UK. It is
> very similar to here in the US. Maureen has chosen to dedicate her life to
> teaching BSL and other methods of communication in the UK. I really admire
> her organization, called "Practice Makes Perfect"! They just won a big
> award...which is really impressive...
> Suzanne will teach the SignWriting workshop on August 27th, under the
> auspices of Practice Makes Perfect.
> I surely hope many Deaf and hearing people will attend the SignWriting
> New materials are being written for the workshop in BSL in SignPuddle,
> including the writing of BSL materials on a DVD which Maureen has
> produced. You can look in the Literature Puddle for BSL:
> SignPuddle for British Sign Language
> BSL Literature Puddle
> In the Literature Puddle, search for the word "farmer" and that will show
> you the writing of a song in BSL called EIEIO...
> THANK YOU again, Maureen and Suzanne -
