description not quite accurate
(McKenney, VA) - November 26, 2013
I got this as a gift for my sister who is returning to teaching this year. The poem is beautiful and I'm sure she will be very happy with it. However, when the description said it was printed on heavy canvas, I was expecting it to be fabric. It is actually coated in some sort of protective surface (handy in a classroom I'm sure) that makes it look and feel like vinyl. It is attached to the wooden dowels by folding the ends over and gluing them - both of which had come lose during shipment. I tacked them down with some tiny stiches and hung it up to let the vinyl smell fade before Christmas. It IS a lovely banner and I'm sure she will enjoy it for many years.
