Volunteers from the Edmonton Weavers’ Guild started a weaving program at Strathcona Place Seniors’ Centre in the 1970’s. This continues to be a very popular program with up to 12 participants. Volunteers from EWG plan projects, dress looms and generally teach and assist participants to weave a variety of items – rugs, tea towels, blankets, scarves, etc. Participants range from beginners to experienced and each is assisted according to her needs. Looms and materials have been donated over the years and projects are planned with what is available.
