    I am so sorry to hear of Linn’s passing. She was my embroidery teacher, my mentor, and my friend. She had an endless passion for historic embroidery and shared it with everyone. The embroidery community has lost one of our treasures.l I will miss her.

  2. Dawn Lewis says:

    Linn brought a depth of understanding and enthusiasm to all of her friends and students of needlework. She loved research and she was very, very good at sharing her work with those of us who were lucky enough to share her interest. She was charmed by the connection she felt with all of those needlewomen of the past. Linn was a friend and she was a teacher. That is certainly her legacy.

    I am glad to have had the opportunity to have taken a class from her. goldwork I was looking her up to see where she might be teaching or what she might have designed recently, see what she might have researched or be planning to research. She was a pleasure to learn from. Goodbye, Linn. In heaven the goldwork church garments will not need to be mended.

  4. Linn was an amazing woman. The needlework community and the world is that much poorer for her loss. She was a wonderful teacher and a dear friend. I have very fond memories of classes and conversations with her. The patterns I have of hers are all the more dear.

    Linn brought great light and understanding to the world of embroidery. Her interest and understanding of history as it related to embroidery helped many of us get a better handle on the embroidery we were doing. In addition her insight into how to unlock our personal creativity was priceless! She shared her enthusiasm and knowledge with hundreds of us in the embroidery and historical reenactment worlds. She will be missed by many. Personally she was my mentor and friend. I learned so much from her as a person; not the least being generosity of self in teaching. May her memory and teachings live on!
