Ellwood Explorers learn a new craft

In the October Ellwood Explorer Mom and Me program, children 7 and older and their moms (or grandmas, aunts, etc.) will make knitting spools, a craft from the past, then will use the spools to craft decorations for the Ellwood House Christmas tree. The program is at 1:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 13 and is free, but registration is required. Call 815-756-4609 or email rnickels@ellwoodhouse.org to register.
