People stare because she looks like a character from "Dr. Zhiva- go." Stark is wearing her craft. From a small basement workshop at her home on the Pine Lake Plateau, Stark pieces rabbit pelts together into a dozen different house- hold decorations and clothing. She is carrying on one of the oldest crafts in re- corded history, but that isn't what inspires her to make six- foot long rabbit fur blankets and furry pillows. "Rabbits come in every imaginable color and their beauty inspires me," she says. Stark skins and tans her rabbits, with a process she re- fined ten years ago when she first went into the business. Along the way she says she's had to argue with ardent animal lovers who lament the harmless little creatures who look so good draped over a sofa or women's shoulders. "l don't bother arguing anymore," says Stark. "I'm just one of those people who belives nothing should go to waste. Rabbits are wonderful to eat and they simply have beautiful furs." Stark started raising rab- bits for food ten years ago when she was living in Sno- qualmie. "It's marvelous meat, like tender white chick- en." She says the family used to throw out the pelts after they had eaten the meat. "It was a terrible waste." Now she doesn't raise rab- bits anymore and gets all the pelts she needs from people in the area who breed them for food. Furs vary in price from 35 cents to $1.50. She tans them with salt and alum, products straight out of a supermarket used for pickl- ing.
