TWIN OR FULL / In Macrame classes sponsored by the Community Library Association, an age-old art with a J modem appeal was made available to approximately 20 participating i ladies. ! The art of decorative knotting, which has existed throughout history and in all parts of the world, was taught by Mrs. Gladys Anderson who, with her husband, owns and operates Gems, etc. Macrame is often known as a sailors' craft, since many existing examples are the work of seamen who during long voyages made objects knotted from worn-out ropes. However, in the Museum of American Folk Art in Manhattan, N.Y. an exhibit includes many religious articles, clothing and personal adornments which, although similar in appearance, came from widely disparate cultures. In interior areas knots were once used to tie logs together in the construction of houses; to bundle sheaves of wheat; and to fasten clothing. The knot, functional, soon became decorative. Victorian ladies framed pictures in Macrame, and door hangings were knotted of fancy cords. Contemporary artists deal mostly in wall hangings and clothing. Virginia Harvey, curator of textiles at the University of Washington began researching the then-obscure art, and in 1967 authored "The Art of Creative Knotting". She conducted GLADYS ANDERSON donated her free-of-charge macrame classes. by r Open: 10-6 Mon. - Fri.; 10-5 Sat.; FREE DELIVERY Hwy.

Wide-spread classes extend throughout the country as men, women, teen-agers, and all age groups from third-graders to grandparents learn the two basic knots that open the door to creative adventures. Among the most popular creations are jewelry, belts, purses, hair ornaments, key chains, book markers and an almost endless array of items for home decor. Instructor Gladys Anderson has made hundreds of Macrame pieces. Donating her services, she conducted two lessons for each class held on June 30 and on July 1, 7 and 8 in Shelton Public Library at no charge. Students made a "sampler" styled to be worn as either necklace or belt. The next of many projects to be launched by the Community Library Association will be the Creative Stitchery class to begin August 5. Marie Grinnell will donate her time as instructor, and no charge will be made to students. Those interested may register at the library. Movies and a lecture series will be sponsored by the association this fall, and more "Take-Off" days are scheduled, wherein participants, armed with a book, hike into the woods for specific nature studies. The group will also inaugurate a radio program on station KMAS featuring a story hour for the elderly. Short stories will be read, or complete books, a chapter or two at a time. The purpose of the Community Library Association is to promote the use of the library in worthwhile ways for the benefit of the community. All activities are offered free of charge. Membership is open and information is available at the library. TWO BASIC KNOTS are learned under the guidance of a teacher. From then on, creative possibilities are almost endless. /i ....
