Mrs Barbara Fowler OAM

It is with great sadness that the BIHSIFF Committee acknowledges the passing of Mrs Barbara Fowler OAM, Founder and Patron of the Bothwell International Highland  SpinIN and Fibre Festival.

Mrs Fowler was an inspiring, gracious and hospitable person, whose vision and creative love of fibre, spinning and friendships, brought the world's artisans to Bothwell.

At Barbara's invitation, international, national and local guests have shared their skills and cultural history, to encourage and enthuse SpinIN and SpinOUT attendees alike to pursue their creative  potential through the manipulation of fibre.

We extend our sincere condolences to her family and her many friends across the world.

Juliet Smith

President BIHSIFF Committee
