Thank you for sharing this with us. You've both been a part of my fiber life for a very long time, and I'll always be grateful.

My deepest condolences to Deb's family and friends, and to you. I'll be knitting with indigo yarn and raising my cup.


I'll knit along too. Deb sent me an encouraging note a few years ago. I appreciated this. I'll treasure it all the more now.

What a shock to hear about Deb's passing! Deb and I corresponded a bit via e-mail years ago and I always enjoyed hearing what she had to say. I am just sorry I never got to meet her in person.

What a loss for the fiber world. Thanks for your posts.

Oh no, how shocking and tragic! I never met Deb in person, and only traded emails with her a few times, but she made a huge impression on me from just those few exchanges, not to mention, of course, her impressive body of work. She will be greatly missed, even IMHO by people who don't know it yet.


I am so sorry to hear this. I am just beginning to know her work, so thank you for your review in your other post. Most certainly a cup of tea and a few moments of craft in her honor are called for.


Beautifully stated, Deb--Deborah was blessed with your friendship.


She will be missed. I'm sorry I didn't get the chance to know her better.


I'm so sorry to hear this! I always enjoyed reading her articles in Spin-Off. My condolences to her friends and family.


Oh, so sad. Thanks for letting us know, Deb. I'm glad that I got to know her, at least a little bit.

What a loss! I was saddened to hear of her death. I know that she leaves behind a great legacy for us fiber enthusiasts.


I followed you at Deb's house and was there Thursday through Sunday along with her dear friend Brenda from Colonial Williamsburg. On Friday we sat in her living room and had tea and scones and Brenda told Deb about Queen Elizabeth's visit to Wmsbrg and Deb had questions and took notes and was thrilled to hear about it. I will not be able to go to the memorial service but at 1 on Thursday will take a minute to think about her. Deb was a friend since grade school and was truly one of a kind. Would like to hear from you my email is stoopswats@comcast.net

I am sad at this loss and wish condolences for her family. I knew her from SpinOff. I think the article I loved most was that sweater from the Hampshire sheep. I wish I'd had a chance to meet her.
