RIP, Marty. You were quite the character and a gifted crochet instructor & CGOA President. Cancer sucks. I, and the entire crochet community, will miss your bright light.

I am sorry to her of Marty’s passing. I took some of her classes at CGOA conferences, and was lucky enough to be her class helper at one of them. She will be much missed by the crochet community.

I am sorry to hear about Marty's passing. I met her a few years ago at the CGOA conference. She was a fantastic teacher, and she will be missed.

I was saddened to hear of Marty’s passing. I knew her through the CGOA, and spent many great times with her at conferences. Her passing leaves a huge hole in the fiber arts world. She was a friend and mentor to all who had the blessing of knowing her.
