Press scarves

The Washington Times Weekly - - National -

Were you aware that Carol Press, wife of Wash­ing­ton-based TV and ra­dio broad­caster Bill Press, is an award-win­ning weaver?

In her sun-filled stu­dio be­hind the cou­ple’s home on Capi­tol Hill, Mrs. Press — “the tal­ented mem­ber of the fam­ily,” notes Mr. Press — de­signs and weaves bright and color­ful rayon-che­nille scarves for both women and men.

In fact, her Web site says we’ve prob­a­bly seen one of the scarves on TV or in news­pa­pers with­out re­al­iz­ing it: “On cold Wash­ing­ton days they are worn warmly and proudly by many mem­bers of the me­dia, by Broad­way stars, by sev­eral mem­bers of Congress and the Se­nate and by at least one for­mer pres­i­dent,” Mrs. Press says.

Scarves like the one worn by Bill Clin­ton are sold at some of the coun­try’s finest cloth­ing spe­cialty stores, from Julie’s Art-to-Wear on New York’s Madi­son Av­enue and Art and Soul on Penn­syl­va­nia Av­enue in Wash­ing­ton to the Fly­ing Shut­tle in Seat­tle’s Pi­o­neer Square.
