Little Bow Community Club members learn to weave By RUTH SHUMAKER Herald News Service Weaving is fun as well as an inter- esting and worthwhile hobby. Since a great deal of inter- est had been shown in weav- ing and the fact that a good used loom could be pur- chased from the Lethbridge Rehabilitation Centre, the Little Bow Community Club acquired the loom and set it up on the lower floor of the Little Bow Hospital. Mrs. Cynthia Russell from the Bowman Art Centre, a member of the Weaver's Guild, kindly came up, threaded the loom and gave a few lessons to start the wo- men weaving. As a part of the New Hori- zon program for senior citi- zens the Little Bow Commu- nity Club is setting up a craft shop to show what the senior citizens can contri- bute to a community. They hope to have an in- teresting display of articles, made on the loom, for their craft shop and also at their booth at the agriculture fair being held in Carmangay Aug. 6. Mrs. William (Bertha) Gray, who has a similar loom, showed how to make some of the many beautiful designs that can be made on different articles. Mrs. Gray has turned out some beautiful rugs, pillows, dresser scarfs and b e d- spreads, to mention a few ar- ticles, on her loom.
