> Hello Maureen and Suzanne and Everyone!
>
> THANK YOU for offering a SignWriting Workshop in the UK on August 27, 
> 2010!
>
> 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 
> workshop!
>
> 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
> http://www.signbank.org/SignPuddle1.5/index.php?ui=1&sgn=0&sgn=125
>
> 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 -
