I received a call today from Roger Garrett's daughter, Chandra, informing me that he was diagnosed with cancer 6 weeks ago and passed away April 18.
He was the maker of the Stitchmate needlework stands.

They have had to take down the website because they do not have the passwords to make changes. Chandra asked me to let everyone know that if they have an outstanding order or need parts to contact her at chandra.crane@gmail.com

I was very sorry to hear this news and am keeping the family in my thoughts and prayers.

I had heard this sad news on another site last week and was able to sign the guest obituary. Roger was so very nice to me during my ordering process and my daughter was about ready to order her own Stitchmate stand. I do hope that after a time someone will be able to continue the tradition. I guess I figured everyone knew this already... He was too young, 64 I believe.

How very very sad! I met both Roger and Victoria at the stitching festival in Hershey a number of years ago.. what lovely people. in fact that is where I bought my Stitchmate....My heart goes out to the family. Thanks Vix for passing on this information.

How very sad! I was just getting ready to order a stitchmate. I've been saving my money. I guess it was not meant to be.

My thoughts and prayers go out to Roger's family.
