Sad News

The needlepoint community is suffering a great loss. The wonderful designer and teacher dede Ogden passed away on May 1. dede was a wonderful teacher who I met soon after I moved to California. After I moved to Napa I discovered that she lived just up the road from me. We went to the same grocery store and I would run into her there.

She was an amazing designer, a generous teacher, an outstanding businesswoman, and a good friend. In your mercy, please pray for the repose of her soul.
