Hello Valerie and welcome to the SignWriting List!

I guess all people named Valerie love to dance and write signs - ha!

For those of you new to the List, we also have a web site for Sutton
DanceWriting:

DanceWritingSite
http://www.DanceWriting.org

But back to your work in Australia, Val...it sounds very interesting and we
would love to hear more about it. Several members on the SignWriting List
are from Australia.

I am sure AUSLAN is a truly beautiful language. If you would like some
literature on SignWriting for your library, I will be happy to sent it.
Perhaps library visitors would want information to take home with them? I
have only written a few AUSLAN signs, but we could do more if you think
there is interest.

Valerie ':-)
