THE GLGTHING SHOP
The Clothing Shop was opened in September 19389 Eliz-
abeth Von Hoff is the shop teacher. There are twenty-six
girls who have been accepted as students in this course.
The first of the year, before the equipment arrived, all
the girls were taught how to handle knitting and Crocheting
needles and how to do fancy stitches of embroidery work. The
class is now divided into departments under the titles: Wom-
en's Wear, Childrenfs Wear, Undies and Men's Furnishings.
The girls are not allowed to make their own clothing during
school time but instead they take orders from their friends
and teachers. The uniforms of the Food Shop girls, the
nurse's uniforms, the linens and bedding for the first aid
room and also the curtains for the lavatory were all made by
the girls of this shop.
Pattern drafting is a required subject. In this class,
students design and draft patterns used for slips, dresses,
and uniforms. After completing the product, it is put on
display for a short time in the hall or in Miss Wooden's of-
fice. A style show is planned for May to display to parents
and students what has been accomplished by the girls in this
shop. , ,
Trips have been' made to King Manufacturing Company,
Standard Garment Company, Advance Glove Company and Redfern
Coat Company. Knowledge of different machines to be used in
the future are gained from these visitsc
