Fiber artist, Laura Sims, died on October 11, 2014. She became an exhibiting member of Piedmont Craftsmen in 2008 and was also a member of Southern Highlands Craft Guild. She worked for both the Southern Highlands Craft Guild and John C. Campbell Folk School in administrative and/or shopkeeper capacities while building her love of mountain craft and craftsmen. In the mid-80’s (?) she drove cross-country with a friend to take a weekend marbling class and found her ‘thing’. She taught marbling many times at Folk School, Penland and Arrowmont. She organized an International Marbling Conference at Arrowmont in ’02 which drew marbling artists from all over the world.
