Lovely to Look At...ABC WEDNESDAY "L"









Marge Lindemann from Cumberland, WI taught emotionally disturbed teen-agers for 25 years but had no time to do art. After she retired she has been making originally designed garments, scarves and wall pieces from hand painted and dyed silk for the past 9 years. I met her in an art store in Stockholm, Wi where she was demonstrating her art-in-progress on a silk scarf with an autumn leaf motif. She has outlets for her work in several Wisconsin towns, including Algoma, a Lake Michigan hamlet in Kewaunee County which happened also to be the small town where I was born. Small world!
