Tom Holtkamp TSWG founding member passes away

It’s with a sad and heavy heart that we report that our founding member and past board member, Tom Holtkamp from Noblesville, Indiana passed away on Thursday, March 15, 2012.

Tom was the backbone and fiber of our group, very knowledgable about setting up organizations and guided us through establishing TSWG, setting the by-laws, incorporating our guild, and filing for our non-profit 501(c3) status. He was gracious and sharing with his knowledge too of chair seat weaving in all its forms and was a frequent demonstrator at our annual Gatherings.

Sarah and Tom catered our dinner for the 4th Annual Gathering 2011

We are so thankful to Tom and his lovely wife Sarah for providing the venue for our 4th Annual Gathering right there in Tom’s hometown of Noblesville at the fairgrounds and to open his home for the Friday night Meet ‘n Greet for the members attending the Gathering.
