Lynn, Thanks for mentioning Tom's blog. I hadn't ever read it. It's still there. I plan to read some more. I wonder what will happen to it. Hope it doesn't disappear before I get back to it.

This show was so well done, Ricky and Alex. I knew Tom was sick but didn't know HOW sick. He only lived about 20 miles from me before he moved, but other than taking a couple of classes, and having mutual friends, that's my only contact.

You guy did a great job in a very sensitive way while still letting us see the difficult journey both he and Sharon have been on together. I so loved his blog when he had it........talk about colorful!!!! He will be missed.

As for sharon, she keeps me speechless! Love her work.

I just watched this show, how inspirational. Not just the real friendship Sharon and Tom shared, but the struggles they each have had. It was really heartwarming to hear about Sharon's dyslexia, then about her depression,then that she has Asbergers, then, oh by the way, she suffers essential tremors as well. Wow! It gives me hope that my son, who suffers from epilepsy and resultant difficulties with learning and comprehension, will also find his true talent as well and be able to overcome them in ways that can amaze others, as Sharon has done.

I agree one of the best shows! Great to see
Sharon's and Tom's friendship bloom. Sharon's tips and applique methods were
great. Tom's color segment was great too.

Just Wow! I feel blown away with this show. There was too much to take in from one viewing. I so wish there had been more about colour and how to use it, that really made me start thinking.

Thinking about the dates mentioned, I am sure that it was about this time we had a thread about problems on Sharon's website and how there weren't any responses from her. I guess now we know why she wasn't able to respond, because life and friendship was more urgent for her at the time.

Amazing show. How lucky I feel to be able to watch Tom and Sharon and in a small way "be in their circle."

Thank you TQS.

I too watched the show and was deeply moved by it. It was beautiful, uplifting and unbelievably heart-breaking. I cried through most of the show, for the tragic loss of Tom, for the pain his dear friend Sharon and family and friends will feel, and for our loss. I cried for the joy, love, care and compassion Sharron brought to Tom's life and the great friendship they shared. This show is without doubt the best I have seen and Sharon was marvellous, her techniques and generosity never fail to astound me. It is a show I will watch again and again, it really defined what it means to be human. Like Lois I would like to reach out to Sharon in her grief and can only let her know that I send my love. I love being a member of TQS but I want to thank all at TQS for this magnificent memorial to Tom.

Just finished watching the show. I agree with everyone, it is one of the best show. Inspiring story, and great technique. If I have the opportunity to attend a seminar with Sharon Schamber, I will not miss this. I really enjoy raw edge appliqué, I have to try this technique.

What an amazing show! The connection between Sharon and Tom was beautiful, complex and nearly beyond comprehension. Because of that, I really would like to find a way to reach out to Sharon in her grief. I can only imagine her grief must be equally as intense as the friendship had been. Hopefully, her creativity will provide a place for the healing she must need. And the skills presented, I will watch that over again and again. Just like the rest of you.

The email addresses listed on her webcite are for her daughter and for Tom. I think reaching out with words might only be stressful for her. What a complex person she is.
