I could not do a blog post without saying a few words about the terrible loss of my friend Sarah. I can't believe she's gone and I'll never see her again. Sarah was a wonderful, genuine and generous person. Her talent was immense. I loved visiting her shop, her work was everywhere, and then you could really appreciate Sarah's imagination and talent. She played, experimented. Created. She truly was an artist.

I feel so desperately for the family she leaves behind. I was made so welcome, going to see Sarah and David was home from home, they even welcomed the dogs with open arms. I never went on one of Sarah's classes, I know it would have been fantastic and a pure inspiration. That I regret, but I am happy my life has been richer having Sarah as a friend.

How can such energy and inspiration just disappear.

I don't know how to end this post, it feels no words can...So simply, I miss you Sarah. Thank you for being such a wonderful friend.

- Leonie

Leonie, long time no see, I am deeply saddened by the news about Sarah. She was a unique talent in the textile world, and more than that, she was a beautiful woman. Love to all her family and friends. Debbi. (formerly from All About Crafts.)
