We'll start with Margaret Grant, whose memorial award is presented by the Weaver's Guild of St. Louis for weaving from no more than 4 shafts.
Her obituary in the guild newsletter included this story.
In sharing a crowded cab in Chicago at Convergence she had to sit in the front seat with the driver and recognizing his accent from Zimbabwe they were shortly chattering away about his native country. She loved to share discoveries about world arts, events and people. But in our study groups we shared giggles like school girls.Margaret's specialty was weaving clothing with fine threads. We honor her memory with an award the recognizes an elegant fashion fabric developed from a simple structure that complements a garment's design.
Thank you to Karen Kelly Schultz and members of the St. Louis guild who provided this information.
