Others are (from left) Bob Galloway, Jerry Craven, Bill Harvey, Gresham police district Cmdr. Joseph Reply, McGann, retired Division Marshal Jim (Stretch) Hughes and Jim McDonough. Free classes in crewelwork and embroidery are scheduled Wednesday evenings from 7 to 9 at Scottsdale library, 4101 W. 79th St., until May 25. The classes are for adults and young adults with no experience in stitchery as well as those who have done some work before Mrs. Mary Kadner, a library RSVP volunteer, will teach the course. Embroidery students are requested to take to class crocheting thread and a simple x-stitch pattern, or a pattern they are currently working on. Crwel students should provide a x-stitch crewel kit, complete with thread "Most people don't realize their own talent," said Mrs Kadner, "I hope this course will not only show people how to do crewelwork and embroidery, but will give them the basic tools to go on to other art forms and hobbies. "It always amazes me how people underrate their own abilities," she added. "All it takes to do crewelwork is patience, discipline, a knowledge of color combinations and some imagination. "Some of these I will teach in the classes, and the other talents I hope to bring out in the participants." Mrs. Kadner's embroidery work includes dozens of tablecloths, pillow cases and aprons laced with delicate trim. Her tablecloth patterns are so elaborate that many have taken months to complete. Thousands of stitches have resulted in radiant floral displays and intricate freestyle patterns. She has also done crewelwork on art patterns suitable for framing. According to Mrs Kadner, such work is relaxing and can provide for many gratifying hours of leisure time activity. "With some hobbies you have no end result, nothing tangible to be proud of," she said. "But crewelwork and embroidery are always there. "They are something you do with your own hands, can show to friends and display in your home."
