Lynden event will honor fiber artist Mary Ann Drake

The Bellingham Herald
I received a call from Bellingham resident George Drake, who wanted me to know about a special (and touching) event honoring his wife, Mary Ann Drake, beginning Thursday, June 12, and running through Saturday, June 14, at the Jansen Art Center in Lynden. Here's some of what he said in an email to me: After about 40 years of developing her skills as a spinner, weaver, knitter and winner of many awards for her fiber arts at the Northwest Washington Fair and beyond, Mary Ann Drake (the M.A.D. Hatter) is calling it quits.
