Two wonderful women have passed on this week. Both have touched me with their graciousness. As we all know Shannon left us earlier this week and many of us in the sewing community have been touched in some way by the knowledge she so willingly and graciously shared. She was active on Stitchers Guild, as well as, teaching lessons on Pattern Review and she gave such excellent fabric advice on Emmaonesock. She will be missed.
The second amazing woman who passed on this week was Dorothy Height. I did not know her personally but her struggle for civil rights and the equality for black people in America was part of my childhood and she was a childhood idol. I remember reading about her in my early teens prompted by a favorite aunt who felt I should learn as much as possible about "The Heros" of the Civil Rights Movement.
Both women contributed mightly to my life and they shall be missed!
