A car is a car is a car
But when it is the highly decorated vehicle by Tim Klein, it becomes
a work of art. Via the Internet, local champion crocheter and author
of books of crocheting, Margaret Huber [sic], came across this fascinating
item and got in touch with Mr. Klein to meet with him and see the
automobile. Looking for company for the trip to Valhalla, Margaret
persuaded Earl Slocum to accompany her. Always accommodating, Earl
did the driving. As a result of their meeting, Tim Klein was invited
to participate in the New York City Knit/Crochet fair.
Next, as a consequence of Margaret having attended a Fiber Arts Forum
in Australia where she talked about meeting Tim Klein, they are both
being written up in the "Australian Forum for the Textile Arts"
magazine. Margaret is well-known in Pawling for her classes at
Marie Stewart's Yarn and Craft Box. Many thanks to Margaret for this
unique story, which proves if you are paying attention, there are
interesting things going on worth sharing.
