In November of 2018 our Guild bade farewell to one of our dearest members. Babe Harverson was a wonderful weaver and friend. Her memorial service in January of 2019 brought to light so much of this talented ladies life. For those who had know Babe for may years it only reminded them of the wondrous personality of this remarkable lady. For those of us who had know her for the last 10 years or so it was an affirmation of just how all encompassing her zest for life was. Her generous spirit brought joy to all those around her.
In September of 2019, Babe’s daughter Sheila visited our Guild to propose a memorial legacy fund to further weaving and fibre arts study in our Guild. A memorial shadow box had been put together for Babe’s family and it was presented back to the Guild for display in our room. The fund has been set up and we are actively researching a teacher for this year to fulfill the legacy.
