Marta's Yarns

I got an email in today. A few Aussie know of Marta and her GORGEOUS yarns. Go here if you wish to gander...

Anyway back to the email. Here is a copy of it.

Dear Customers

It is with great sadness that we inform you of Marta's passing away on Thursday 18 January. Marta had been having treatment for cancer over the past 16 months. She was designing knitwear to the very end.

Thank you to all those customers who offered so much support and encouragement to Marta during her illness.

We would ask that you give our family time to come to terms with our loss. The shop will remain closed until further notice.

Patricia Cantos

How sad for us Aussies to lose such a talented woman.

    This is really sad news not just for the knitting community but the community as a whole.

    That is really sad, she wouldn't have been that old and such a talented lady. RIP Marta.
