Textile world losses
The textile community is mourning the loss of three very dynamic women this month: Joan Colvin, Laurel Burch and Susan Oroyan. All most individual in their own right, talented and very giving of themselves. The ethereal beauty of Joan's quilts, the vibrant colours of Laurel's fabrics and the whimsy and delight of Susan's dolls have given us such an amazing legacy to inspire and influence us for years to come. We shall miss their earthly presence but will long remember their magnanimous contributions to the world of fibre arts. The heavenly angels' wardrobes will surely be upgraded to near perfection!
