Breaking News; Dr. Ray is Gone

A Leigh Custom for the Doctor

Over the years I've heard lots of stories about Dr. Ray Endicott, retired doctor in Hawaii who was a demon stitcher.  He loved Asian designs especially and stitched a great many, which of course made him a kindred spirit.  The design on the left is a custom Leigh Designs made for him.  Isn't it lovely?

I was very sad to hear that the world just lost Dr. Ray.  His battle with ill health is over, but he's left a legacy of wonderful stitching and great memories.  Thanks, Dr. Ray!  Loved your geishas!  (By the way, there is also a tribute to Sandy Rodgers here. It's not been a good month for the World of Needlepoint.)

  1. I think you mean Sandy Rodgers, not Sandy Arthur.

  2. You are right! Luckily I already found my error and changed it--with apologies to Sandy!
