Photographed through blankets made by Bill and Fran James from the Lummi tribe, Heather Johnson-Jock, with the Jamestown S'Klallam tribe, spins sheep wool into yarn with a drop spindle whorl Saturday at the Burke Museum in Seattle. She will use the yarn to make blankets, scarves and robes. Johnson-Jock said she learned what she knows from Fran James. Every weekend in April, museum visitors can enjoy Coast Salish art activities and can help weave a communal piece on a loom.
