In memoriam: Bobbie Schoonmaker

Today I read the sad news of the passing of Bobbie Schoonmaker, the lovely lady who had the needleworkbusiness of microstitchery . She died after a long and brave battle .

We stitchers are going to miss her; many of us ,me amongst them, have stitched her charts and kits, and have learnt much from the tutorials on her site.

RIP Bobbie, I am happy that your fight is over, but we will all miss you.

The following lines are from the message that Joy Perkins sent:

"In closing, I would like to let you know messages of condolence can be 
sent through the following Web site: "

Here are some of the things I stitched :

The business will be taken over by Joy Perkins from Canada, she hopes to catch up on outstanding orders and the other work soon.


  1. Elly, this is just so nice of you.

  2. Un gran detalle de tu parte

  3. Bobbie will be sadly missed Elly. I am pleased that her business will continue. Bobbie's creativity and friendliness was outstanding, and it was always a pleasure to order from her and to communicate with her - she was so helpful and generous. Hugs, Sandie
