The Cedar Springs Public Library invites you to join in a festive holiday event that will be held on Friday, November 9, 2018 from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. The library will be honoring our local artist and treasure Marge Clark with a holiday display of counted cross-stitch. Marge will be at the library to greet everyone during this time. Along with honoring Marge there will be a cross-stitch demonstration by our local seamstresses Pat Capek and Dorothy Bishop. And best of all there will be refreshments!

We hope that you will be able to join us for this unique holiday kick-off celebration. Two of Marge’s works are already on display in the library near the fireplace. Don’t forget to check them out. See you then!

Artists, authors and you

Coming to the Cedar Springs Library in October is a display of counted cross-stitch created by local retired teacher Marge Clark. Every three months the library displays works by local artists. On display starting October 1 will be two pieces by Mrs. Clark. The first piece is a 24” x 31” work titled “Winter Skaters.” The second is a 17” x 21” piece titled “Grandchildren.” 

Marge Clark was born in Grand Rapids 92 years ago and has called Cedar Springs home for most of her life. She started sewing as a young girl, making many of her own clothes, and has continued throughout her life. She is a graduate of Michigan State University (bachelors degree) and Central Michigan University (masters degree). She married Jack Clark in 1946 and together they have four children – Marilyn, Barb, Nancy and Mark. Mrs. Clark taught kindergarten for most of her working life, starting at the White Creek country school and continuing at Beach Elementary, until her retirement in 1986. She started working on counted cross-stitch while she was still teaching and continued for many years. After retirement she and Jack traveled extensively until his passing.

Marge is truly an institution in Cedar Springs. We hope you will find time to stop in and view her artwork.
