     The author, Barbara Morton has gathered the patterns and photographs for Down East Netting to preserve the netting skills that have been rapidly disappearing even from Maine's coastal towns.
     She writes... "an order of netted bags hanging on a hook in a Maine kitchen, the wintry light reflecting the soft sheen in their netted design, assumes as much beauty as any other handicraft. And yet, even though netting is one of the earliest crafts known to mankind, and certainly an important part of the coastal settlements here in America, it is rarely included in craft shows or thought of as folk art".
     Barbara Morton has documented the craft and art of netting in a book full of easy to follow illustrations and directions. She will enable you to effectively transfer the skills of old to create practical and artful projects such as fashion accessories, lace, bags of all kinds, nets and many other useful and beautiful product.
