Emma’s been coasting down her 90’s for a while… 97 and picking up speed! off to the next adventure! She passed away last Sunday, October 4th, 2015.

Emma loved to sell her rugs… when she sold Opulence II, she had to hook Opulence III. It sold quickly to a collector.

A young photographer came by and took some photos of Emma, and after she was done, Emma asked her to shoot a couple more shots with Emma’s camera. ha! nice…!

Emma and I enjoyed many years of rug making together; 19 years of sharing friends, trips and creativity.

I copied one of her rugs recently; it was fun using her colours… more or less. ha! a visit of sorts.

  1. Laura, I am saddened by your Mom’s passing. She was a great lady, even though I didn’t actually know her, I’m happy to have met and talked to her the few times I was in Petaluma. I’m sure you will miss her very much. I hope she was not sick or suffered at the end, but went peacefully.
