Sadly, yesterday I learned that my supporter, contributor and friend, Joan Tesch passed away. Joan was the niece of Harwood and Sophie Steiger, and the steward of the last cache of Harwood Steiger fabrics. I am heartbroken to learn that she passed away without having had the opportunity to say goodbye. I planned several trips to visit her last Spring, but she put me off saying that she just didn't feel up to it. In retrospect, I should have simply driven down to see her. But, I respected her wishes and stayed away. I'll miss you Joan. You were an inspiration to me and a good friend. You will not be forgotten.

On Saturday, October 5, 2013, I will be giving a presentation to an open audience of the Tucson Historic Foundation Society entitled, "I'm a Harwood Steiger Addict". It is a tremendous honor to be included in this three day program on modernism. The presentation is open to the public and free. It will run for about an hour and contain 100 photographs of Steiger fabrics, as well as, a slide show of 500 additional photos during the question and answer period. For more information, please visit: www.tucsonmod.com. My presentation begins at 2 PM. If you are in the area, I hope you will join me in celebrating this amazing and prolific artist.
