Roberta Carr Passed Away

JeanM | Posted in General Discussion on

Under Roberta Carr Video I replied to a question that Roberta Carr had passed away on September 2.  Apparently it has not been a widely read topic.  I did a search here and if anyone had posted this, I could not find it.  So I thought I should link the blog where there is some information.

I had taken some classes from her and bought her books.  She will be missed.

    Clinking on the link takes me to "This page cannot be found"; however, when I typed it in the Address line, it did go to the correct page.

    Scroll down to the entry for Sept. 3.

    OK, it works from here.  In the previous message it was a Copy and Paste;  this one I typed in, which may or may not explain why it didn't work in the previous message.

      Hi Jean,  I've done it both ways with no results.  I wrote a reply to your message but I don't see it.  I mentioned that I had her tape where she demonstated triangle buttonholes and then several years later saw her grabbing a smoke outside Gwinnett Center where a Sewing Expo was being held.  I recognized her from somewhere but couldn't think where, I even recognized the dress she wore, I'd seen that too.  It was months, maybe a couple of years later that I found the tape and as soon as I picked it up knew who it was that I'd seen.  I was so sorry that I hadn't remembered back then, I would have loved telling her how great that tape was, what a good teacher she was and how easy it was to follow as she slowly and distinctly gave instruction.  Yes, that kind of calm teacher will certainly be missed.....all that knowledge gone, such a pity.  I'm thinking I'd better have that tape transferred to a DVD or that could be the next demise. 

      If it's going to be impossible to get that blog would you be allowed to copy and paste it here?

        AAC, the response which you cannot find is under "Roberta Carr Video".  It prompted me to begin this thread.  I cannot Copy and Paste someone else's copyrighted work; I can only post a link. 

        You may have to type it in the Address line.  I will type it out so you can view it without the underline.  It is easy to mistake an underline for a space, or maybe your computer just won't cooperate.  LOL.

        This is not a link, so make certain you type http at the beginning of it.

          I probably spent an hour last night looking for information on Roberta Carr's death......including obituaries.  I put her name in the browser but still can't find out anything about her passing.  How did you learn of this?  I'm figuring a sewinng publication may have acknowledged it.  All the good ones have grown old and have either retired or are gone.  During my hunt I found an article Sandra Betzina used to have weekly, she, by her own admission, is 62.  Boy, time flys when you get past 50 or even 45!

            You're still having a problem with that?  Even if you type it in, you can't get there?  OK, I'll send an e-mail to you with more info.  (guess there is no way to PM someone here.)

          2. AAC | | #9

            Thanks, I'd appreciate that.  Did you say you took one of her classes.  Where was it? Did she wear the dress with the long sleeve?  She wore HER DRESS on every part of the tape I have, just changed the fabric but it was a very nice, well fitting dress.  She must have loved that pattern because she had it on, naturally a different color and fabric, when I saw her.  Boy, that's the way to sew!  Once you get it down pat make it over and over.  Of course, I seem to always challenge myself and do something different or more complicated and then it can take an excruciating amount of time, most of which is just cogitating about the project.

            Hi Jean ~ Here's another OT computer tidbit! ;)

            It's not the same as PM in other forums, but you can send an offlist email to someone by going to their Profile (click on the name in the To/From space above the post). There's an option there to "Send Email" and a checkbox to "send a copy to myself" - a good idea, since otherwise you have no record of what you wrote; it doesn't go in the Sent records of your email program.If you change your preferred email addy, you can update that in "Update Profile" at the very top of the frame, next to "Taunton". Hope that helps! Bright Blessings ~ Kharmin

            Thanks, KharminJ !  I did figure it out.  :)

            Let me know when you are ready for some of Jean's Top 100 Computer Questions. :0

      I had no trouble with the second link. Thanks for introducing me to this blog. Interesting.

      1. JeanM | | #5

        I never would have guessed that there are so many sewing blogs, and, of course, one blog leads to another and another and so on.  This is not helping me cut down my time on the internet!

        I'm not a big fan of Blogger but there are some good blogs there.  The only thing I can't find is a place to search for blogs (the Search button on individual blogs is for that blog only).  It seems as if the only way is to actually know the title of a blog.  If you know a way, please let me know.

        1. Josefly | | #6

          I hope someone here can help you with that question. I only know of blogs to which I'm linked directly from here or from another link, as you suggest. I bookmark those I think I might like to check in on in the future, but I, too, need to cut down on time on the internet. Just out of curiosity, I "Googled" "Blog Directory" and came up with - whoa! - 44 million entries. "Sewing Blogs" produced a mere 2 million.
