Arts cooperative honors longtime members
Both Jones and Reese were awarded lifetime memberships to the Holston Mountain Arts and Crafts Cooperative, an organization that began in 1971 with the mission of preserving and promoting the arts and crafts heritage in the region. Organizers Kathy and Rees Shearer of Emory and Eric and Sara Reese of Abingdon, supported by a group of churches and a community action agency in Washington County, brought local craftspeople and artists together to sell their work for fair prices.
The dedication, service, and contributions of Jones and Reese have not gone unnoticed throughout the four decades they have been members.
“These two ladies have been with us every day for 43 years and I think that deserves an honor,” said Donna Price, manager of the Holston Mountain Artisans, a name they took when the cooperative of artists moved from the Cave House building to the former county jail on Parks Street, a block from the Cave House.
The Shearers are the only other charter members also to receive the lifetime membership honor.
As charter members of the Holston Mountain Arts and Crafts Cooperative, one of the oldest cooperatives in the country, Jones and Reese agree that joining the organization was a turning point for both of their careers.
Jones, 92, reminisced that at 55 she got her first driver’s license just so she could deliver her handmade crafts around town. Reese, a potter, said she was so excited to sell her first crocheted purse she’d made as a new member that she made another one, and then another.
The artists share more than a love for art. Their artistic journeys are important pieces of local history.
Jones has spent much of her life sharing her crafting skills with others. She’s taught every kind of craft class imaginable, driving as far as Richlands and Marion to give lessons in macramé, decoupage, crocheting, knitting, tatting, needlepoint and cross stitch, just to name a few.

Origami Ornaments, The Ultimate Kusudama Book
Try using various wrapping paper patterns and colored paper - the possibilities are endless. Origami Ornaments is the perfect book for holiday crafters and origami enthusiasts alike.
About this book
Origami Ornaments is based on the design of traditional Japanese Kusudama ceremonial spheres. But the Japanese designs regularly require the use of glue to hold several parts together. Lew Rozelle has designed four basic models - base, joiner, clip, and hinge - which can be folded together, hanging in lovely globe or lantern shapes, thus remaining true to origami purist standards. Folded out of colorful paper, the ornaments can be made small enough to hang on a Christmas tree or large enough to hold aromatic potpourri. As the ornaments rest they will open gently, like flowers, but still not come apart. Also included are instructions for incorporating string for hanging as well as tassels into the design - a lovely finishing touch. There are no limits to the number of unique ornaments you can make from the four basic models. Try using various wrapping paper patterns and colored paper - the possibilities are endless. Origami Ornaments is the perfect book for holiday crafters and origami enthusiasts...
