Kay ten Kraft’s Memory Honored
The Heritage Spinners and Knitters Group, which gathers on Friday afternoons at the Stephentown Memorial Library, has chosen to dedicate a collection of textile arts books and materials to the library in memory of their beloved friend and member, Kay ten Kraft. A woman of valor and a friend to all, Kay was a multi-talented fellow traveler in the world of fiber arts. As an accomplished spinner, weaver, felter, dyer, phenomenal knitter and crocheter, she was ever willing to share her time and knowledge with others struggling to learn these arts. The group hopes to carry on her legacy and love of the fiber arts through the creation of a special textile collection dedicated to her memory. Budding textile artists, hobbyists and crafters, along with experienced and serious fiber enthusiasts, will benefit from the books and publications which will be available at the Stephentown Memorial Library. Hopefully, this collection will continue to be expanded over time and become renowned for the wide variety of materials available to the public. Through this gift, Kay’s memory will live on in all who were touched by her knowledge, friendship and creative spirit. The public is invited to visit the collection at the Stephentown Memorial Library. For more information, call 518-733-5750.
