We Farewell June

It is sad, but it is time for us to say goodbye to June McKenzie, one of our long-standing faithful members. June was very knowledgable about textiles in general and weaving in particular.  She participated fully in our group and never hesitated to take on a challenge, right up to her last few weeks of life. She was a teacher and mentor and generously shared her expertise. Her work was meticulous and always perfectly finished.
 Weavers will be happy to know that June was laid to rest wearing one of her handwoven, hand embellished vests, and her casket was draped with one of a pair of her handwoven bedspreads and a finely woven wrap. 
She was a special friend and we will miss her.
