Mary Burkett was an amazing person. She began the International Feltmakers Association, and was one of the early advocates for contemporary feltmaking. Her book "The Art of the Feltmaker" was very important to me when I was a new felter, trying to learn this wonderful, ancient craft. A memorial service is being held on February 6th, in Carlisle Cathedral, England at 5:30 PM. Inge Evers had this idea: It would be wonderful if feltmakers around the world could pause a moment to think wonderful thoughts of Mary at this time. (At whatever 5:30 PM is in their own time zone. On the Pacific Coast of North America, this will be 9:30 AM on the same day. It's easy to Google the time to find out.) In this way we can all send Mary on to her next adventure, we will be a circle around the earth.
