Sadly, we must announce the loss of one of
our members: Betty McCartney. She had a
cheerful disposition and a winning smile.
Betty was a talented seamstress who created
garments for clients. She was also a talented
wearable artist making one-of-a-kind
garments from beautiful fabrics. Unlike
some of us, Betty always finished projects
from workshops she took. Betty was a recent
past President of WAC and served on the board
in other capacities. She was also a long-time
member of WAC, Fibereye and the
American Sewing Guild. Betty was a
positive, thoughtful and encouraging force
behind our group plus generous with the
sharing ideas and techniques.
She was an avid sailor and loved the sea. She will be missed!

Member Show-n-Share

Join us as we celebrate our members sharing their own fine creations using new techniques, workshop skills, and top creative talents found in the wearable art field today.







More sad news, we have also recently lost another of our former Presidents of WAC, Jeananne Coop. She graciously hosted the WAC Board meetings at her beautiful Victorian house in Whitter. She gently kept us on track and much was accomplished at the meetings. Jeananne always completed the WAC Challenges with unique wearable art. She encouraged creativity in all of us.
She said in one of her
President’s Messages “I know
that the programs,
workshops, inspirations and
friendships I have found in
WAC have enriched my life”.
She enriched our lives with
​knowledge and kindness.
In her professional life,
Jeananne was a home
economics teacher at
Cal State University
Long Beach.
​She will be missed!
