Tie Love-Themed Knots for Valentine’s Day

Thursday, January 19 at 1 p.m.

Rehoboth Beach, DE – While many people understand the importance of knots for sailors or the surfmen of the United States Life-Saving Service, the decorative side of knot tying is something not often discussed. In their spare time, mariners created beautiful decorative knot pieces which could be kept to give to loved ones.

With Valentine’s Day approaching, Delaware Seashore State Park will host “Love Me, Love Me Knot,” a class to learn to tie three decorative knots, all with a heart or love theme.  Each participant will leave with a decorative box to display their knots at home.

Pre-registration required.  The fee for this program is $15 and includes all instruction and materials. This class is suitable for ages 10 and up. Pre-registration is required by calling (302) 227-6991.

The Indian River Life-Saving Station is located in Delaware Seashore State Park, 1.5 miles north of the Indian River Inlet and 3.5 miles south of Dewey Beach.  More information is available at destateparks.com.
