On Sunday, June 5, DeMarys Cooper, Judy Teply and Morayah Cupp will join forces to present an informative program on making rugs at the Chase County Museum.

DeMarys Cooper has been making rugs for about 20 years. Arabell Terwilliger taught her how to make rugs and gave her a pioneer buggy wheel rim to use as a frame.

Judy Teply has also been making rugs for about 20 years. She makes rugs from Pendleton Wool from Pendleton, Ore. This wool is the salvage cut from the large woven rolls.

Eight-year-old Morayah Cupp will demonstrate her talents at rug-making. Morayah uses a hula hoop as a loom, and will weave unwanted T-shirts into a rug. She will show how to craft a colorful accent rug to brighten up any room. Rug-making is an excellent 4-H project.

The Chase County Historical Society will hold its Annual Tour on Friday, June 10. The Chase County group will join McCook’s “Wild West Bus Ride” at Wauneta. The “Tour” will visit sites on the “Texas Trail” and the Rock Corral at the John Maddux ranch.

All are welcome and anybody wishing to join this tour should contact Carol Maddux at 394-5348 or Byron Hust at 882-4601 by June 5.

The Chase County Museum will be open from 1 to 4 p.m. on Sunday.
