Sad news

We are saddened to hear that member Sadie Miller has lost her beloved husband Reg. After a period of declining health, Reg passed away on Friday, Sept. 25th. Sadie, we all send you our loving thoughts and heartfelt sympathies. We are sharing in your sorrow and praying for your comfort...

Also, former FQG member Clara Allen passed away in her sleep on Friday night. Clara was recently diagnosed with ALS. She was an energetic and keen member, taking part in many workshops and Retreats, and also served on the Workshop Committee. We will miss her smile and fun-loving spirit. Our deepest sympathies go out to her family, including her sister Joyce Rice.

"Sometimes it seems the sun goes down too soon."


  1. What a loss! I only met Clara recently but had heard lots of great comments over the years. She will surely be missed. LB

  2. I'm so sorry for Sadie's loss. I can't imagine how hard it must be to lose your life long partner. My sympathies are with you Sadie.

    And I cannot believe that Clara is gone. Last spring,I attended a Keswick Quilt workshop that Clara organized. She made a big pot of homemade turkey soup for all who attended the workshop. Rest in Peace Clara.

  3. Clara will be fondly remembered by all her quilting friends. My sympathies to her family.
    I will also be thinking of Sadie as she learns to cope with the loss of her husband Reg.
