Woman to Watch: Not Just a Fisherman's Daughter
by Taylor Brown
Growing up in Chatham, I've worn a few hats in my day, but it's my one-of-a-kind headbands that first drew notoriety to my work.
The daughter of a commercial fisherman, I started making articles of clothing to wear while shellfishing.
Those first headbands were a huge success and the Fisherman's Daughter Collection has since grown to include organic cotton fingerless shucking gloves, seaweed wrap scarves, sailor girl dresses, and fair maiden wrap jackets.

A Poem by Mary Ellen Redmond
I am lying
dappled in sunlight.
already dry, chore list
in this fishnet cradle,
of heat dreaming of
and shadows flutter
when the wind blows, it sounds
that everything is moving
of the honey finds its way
train rails warp in
And this breeze, bless
Mary Ellen Redmond lives in
"for peace of mind
