Happened across this article whilst avoiding people today, and found it fascinating. I thought other weaving witches might find it of interest as well.

I've been meaning to post this article on TW for a couple of months to share with everyone! Every time I think of it, I'm not online... thanks for sharing, it really is a beautiful story and craft. I wish I could see some of her creations in person, and I hope her daughter changes her mind.
It makes me wonder how many other lost arts and crafts in the world there are we've never even heard of or seen because someone had no interest in carrying it on after they were given years and years of priceless knowledge.

Yeah, I had mixed feelings about the daughter. On one hand, we all want to live our own lives as we see fit, on the other, she was born into a responsibility she’s completely abandoned. Although that responsibility is worth millions of dollars, and she’d never be able to make a living with it. I wonder why a surrogate daughter wasn’t chosen. It sounds like there are other sea silk seamstresses, just not “masters”.
