Brenda was a special friend and a talented, gifted teacher. She had so much knowledge of quilting, it was astounding. Her patience with all of us, her pupils, was amazing as well. We will never be able to fill the void she leaves both as a friend and teacher. We all loved her quilt shop and shopping there was one of my greatest joys. She kept it stocked to the hilt. My heart goes out to her family and I am saddened that we cannot all gather to show our love and respect for this wonderful, sweet lady.

I am so saddened by her death. She was so helpful when I shopped with her. Several years ago I attended the Thus
rsday afternoon sewing sessions. She was always pleasant and patient. I did have to part with a couple of quarters because I forgot to retract the blade of my rotary cutter before putting it down. God be with you and family, Brenda. You are sorely missed. Linda Brown
