NEW HAVEN — Elinor Steele has her feet planted in two epochs as she deftly manipulates dozens of delicate strands of wool into stunning tapestries in her New Haven studio.

The very basic upright frame loom at which she toils is a throw-back to the 1300s. But the designs that inspire her tapestry creations come from a modern-day computer.

“It’s the same technique as with medieval tapestries, but with modern design,” Steele says.

Several of Steele’s most recent creations are now on display at the Vermont State Craft Center at Frog Hollow. Each tapestry — most of them measuring four-feet-by-four-feet — bursts with vibrant colors and geometric shapes that seem to dance around such common agrarian fixtures as barns and rolling hills.

College to offer language camps for youngsters

September 24, 2007

By MEGAN JAMES

MIDDLEBURY — Every year parents of high school-aged children from all over the country call Middlebury College asking why their son or daughter can’t attend the rigorous summer Language Schools program.

Vice President of the Language Schools Michael Geisler gives the same answer every time: The program is geared toward adults. It is intense, and younger students are usually not ready for that kind of intensity.

In 2008 he can give them another option.

In collaboration with the Monterey Institute of International Studies, the college recently established the Middlebury-Monterey Language Academy (MMLA), a summer language immersion program for pre-college students that will take place next summer at St. Michael’s College in Colchester, Menlo College in Atherton, Calif., and Hampshire College in Amherst, Mass.

$70K grant to enable Boys & Girls Club to extend reach

September 24, 2007

By ANDY KIRKALDY

VERGENNES — A recently announced $70,000 federal grant should help the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Vergennes continue its recent growth by increasing outreach to and programs for local teens, said club director Mike Reiderer last week.

The grant was part of a $1.5 million national package announced on Sept. 14 by U.S. Senator Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.). It also included $310,000 to Burlington’s Boys & Girls Club.

Vergennes-area club officials and board members are still deciding how the grant will be put to use at its two School Street children’s and teens’ sites, although increasing staff hours will almost certainly be the outcome, Reiderer said.  

“Most likely it will go to staffing,” he said. “The purpose of the grant is to increase our service for the kids, to do more outreach, to reach more young people and to provide more programming. And the staff are the key to that. If you have good strong people who can get out there and build relationships with the kids, that’s what it’s all about.”
