The world lost one of its best on Dec 10, 2015. Deb, one of my dearest friends lost her battle with cancer this week. This wasn't her first run in with the horrible disease. She had fought breast cancer a few years earlier and wow did she amaze me with her strength and positive attitude. I am feeling a ton of emotions but I wanted to share some of my fond memories about Deb and what a dramatic difference she made in my life.
She was often published in magazines like Spin-Off and Ply and her work can be found all around the web. Not only was she an accomplished spinner, one of her other loves was tapestry weaving. She taught classes for the guild and was the Artist in Residence at the Neil Balkwill for many years. People would drive up from the states in the middle of winter to learn about fibre from Deb.
