DONOR CLAIMS "NETTING" IS AN ANCIENT ART DATING BACK TO EARLY CIVILIZATION, ORIGINATES FROM FISH NET. NETTING IS SIMPLE AND FASCINATING ONCE THE FUNDAMENTALS HAVE BEEN MASTERED. THE ONLY SKILL NECESSARY IS IN TYING THE KNOT AND DRAWING UP THE LOOP IN A UNIFORM MANNER. DONOR LEARNED THE ART FROM AN AUNT IN THE U.S.A. IN 1957. SHE IS NOW 70 YEARS OLD AND STILL ENJOYS THE CRAFT. (1973).

ACCORDING TO DONOR FRANK BARTOSEK IN AN INTERVIEW WITH NICOLE HEMBROFF, COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT, ON JUNE 24, 2010, THE HANGING WAS A GIFT FROM HIS SISTER MARIA CHUDIK. BARTOSEK RECEIVED IT FROM HER WHEN HE AND HIS WIFE WENT BACK TO CZECHOSLOVAKIA IN 1997 TO SEE WHERE HE WAS BORN AND TO VISIT HIS SISTER (CHUDIK). CHUDIK GAVE THE HANGING TO BARTOSEK JUST AS HE WAS LEAVING, THUS HE DID NOT HAVE TIME TO ASK QUESTIONS WITH REGARD TO THE TEXTILE. DONOR DID NOT KNOW WHO HAD MADE THE PIECE. HE DID NOT KNOW IF THE DESIGN HELD A SPECIFIC MEANING. BARTOSEK SAID HIS "PARENTS' GENERATION WASN'T TOO FREE WITH INFORMATION. THEY HAD IT AND SAID THIS IS WHAT WE USED TO DO AND THAT WAS IT." ACCORDING TO BARTOSEK, THE DESIGN IS SIMILAR TO HOW THEY DECORATED EASTER EGGS. UPON RETURNING HOME, BARTOSEK PUT IT INTO A DISPLAY CABINET. IT WAS ALWAYS THERE. DONOR DECIDED TO GIVE THIS HANGING TO THE GALT BECAUSE HE IS "AT AN AGE WHERE WE HAVE TO CUT DOWN WHAT WE HAVE. NONE OF THE CHILDREN WANTED IT." BARTOSEK WAS BORN IN 1921 IN CZECHOSOLOVAKIA. IN 1925- 1926 HIS FAMILY IMMIGRATED TO CANADA. AT THE TIME, BARTOSEK WAS 4 1/2 YEARS OLD. HIS FATHER (FRANK BARTOSEK SR.) CAME TO RAYMOND ALONG WITH FOUR FRIENDS. THEY WORKED IN THE BEET FACTORY. THEY MOVED BECAUSE LAND WAS BECOMING SCARCE IN CZECHOSLOVAKIA. IN 1926, BARTOSEK, ALONG WITH HIS MOTHER AND SOME OF HIS SIBLINGS, JOINED HIS FATHER IN CANADA. HIS SISTER (MARIA CHUDIK) STAYED IN CZECHOSLOVAKIA IN ORDER TO HELP HER GRANDMOTHER AND GRANDFATHER. FOR MORE INFORMATION SEE PERMANENT FILE.

THE FOLLOWING BIOGRAPHY OF THE DONOR AND WEAVER OF THIS TOWEL, MAXIENE BODGENER, WAS PROVIDED BY BODGENER TO GALT CURATOR WENDY AITKENS AT THE TIME OF DONATION. BODGENER WAS BORN TO RACHEL “DOLLY” LONG AND WILFRED PERRIN. HER MOTHER DIED WHEN BODGENER WAS 18 MONTHS OLD, SO SHE WAS RAISED BY HER GRANDFATHER HENRY GEORGE LONG, AN EARLY SETTLER IN SOUTHERN ALBERTA WHO WORKED AT THE STOPPING HOUSE NEAR KIPP IN 1889. BODGENER’S AUNT ALICE AND UNCLE HARRY “BUSTER” LONG HELPED GRANDFATHER HENRY ON THE FAMILY RANCH SOUTH OF FORT MACLEOD, ALONG THE BELLY RIVER. BODGENER SPENT HER CAREER TEACHING HOME ECONOMICS AT F.P. WALSHE SCHOOL IN FORT MACLEOD, AND SEWED CLOTHES FOR HER FAMILY. IN HER RETIREMENT SHE LEARNED HOW TO WEAVE FABRIC. 13 YEARS LATER, IN 2001, BODGENER PURCHASED A $7000 COMPUTERIZED LE CLERC LOOM. THE LOOM HAS A ‘BLACK BOX’ THAT PROCESSES THE PATTERNS SHE DEVELOPS WITH SPECIALIZED COMPUTER SOFTWARE, TRANSMITTING DIRECTIONS TO THE LOOM. BODGENER HAS DESIGNED AND MADE TEA TOWELS, SCARVES, PLACEMATS, TABLE RUNNERS, HAND TOWELS, AND AFGHANS USING THIS PROCESS. SHE WEAVES FOR HER OWN ENJOYMENT AND SELLS HER PRODUCTS AT A VERY REASONABLE PRICE. THE MOUNTIE TEA TOWEL, WHICH BODGENER SELLS FOR $11, IS CREATED WITH A PATTERN THAT BODGENER DESIGNED BY ASKING HER NEIGHBOUR, A RCMP OFFICER IN FORT MACLEOD, TO POSE IN HIS UNIFORM SO SHE COULD GET THE PROPORTIONS CORRECT. UPON THE COMPLETION OF THE PATTERN, BODGENER GAVE HIM A TOWEL AND HIS CO-OFFICERS AT THE DETACHMENT TEASED HIM ABOUT RECEIVING A TEA TOWEL. THIS TOWEL WAS INCLUDED IN THE EXHIBIT ‘WOVEN IN TIME – CELEBRATING 65 YEARS WITH LETHBRIDGE WEAVERS’, CURATED BY WENDY AITKENS, THAT RAN FROM JUNE 7 TO SEPTEMBER 1, 2014 AT THE GALT MUSEUM.
