Saddened by the news...

of the passing of Lisa Roswell of The Primitive Needle pattern designs.

Lisa was on her way to work when her car was swept away in flood waters, due to the raging floods/storms that crossed the mid west section of the country, earlier this week. Her body was found this morning.
While many of us never had the opportunity to personally meet Lisa, we knew her through her work. I loved everything she did, no one did Halloween better then Lisa.! Lisa's sudden passing is a major loss to the needlework industry, we will all miss her dearly. We can find comfort in knowing that the memory of Lisa will live on through her work that hang upon the walls of our homes.

Please keep Lisa and her family in your prayers.

With a heavy heart,
Brenda
