Ms. Clotilde passed away November 28 as was announced by her friend Janet Pray via the American Sewing Guild.

Condolences to her friends and family. Her wisdom and sewing ideas will be missed.

Thanks for sharing the information. Clotilde was the first sewing catalog I found. I love looking at all the fun items found there.

A significant loss to the sewing and craft community.

I'm sorry to hear that. She used to give classes at the old Fall Fair in Orange County.

I am sorry to hear this. That was the first sewing notions catalog I knew of.

Clotilde was my first introduction to online notions catalogs. She'll be missed.

She was a pioneer in the sewing catalog business and will be greatly missed. My first sewing book was "Clotilde's Sew Smart".

Truly a great lady. I love that catalog still. It's one of those you can browse as fun reading.

I took a few classes and seminars from Clotilde (can't remember her last name) and always loved that when she would give a hint, she would say, "That's on page so-and-so in the book".

Thanks, Clotilde, for all you gave to the sewing world.

I have not yet begun to procrastinate

Update: soon I will decide when I will begin procrastinating.
