It was a warm and wonderful event. One of the most talented seamstresses who ever lived, Selina “Faye” Sarow, created a magnificent reproduction of the blue velvet riding gown Bonnie wore on her fateful ride. Faye’s work on this costume was truly a labor of love. Cammie’s son Matt helped unveil it and he was in tears as he saw it. Faye had made sure everything was authentic. Even the undergarments were authentic, made from vintage fabrics. Note the red gloves and the hat. Everything was done in detail.
A new friend to the Marietta Museum is Mike Trower. He donated a wonderful reproduction of “Tara” in honor of both Cammie King and Fred Crane, who also passed away recently. Mike’s creation of Tara is magnificent, and the fact that it is made not just from wood and paint…but mainly LEGO’s is wonderful!!! He created a paint texture on the Lego’s that truly recreates Tara as we have seen in the film. We will alll miss Cammie and Fred more than I can say.
We will all miss Cammie so much. She loved all her fans. It was her request that Marietta hold a memorial for all her “Windies” and it was wonderful that her son Matt and his partner Rob attended, and also Mickey Kuhn. Patrick Curtis wrote a special greeting. Ann Rutherford attended Cammie’s memorial in Los Angeles, and Patrick travelled to Fort Bragg for her service there. Many thanks to Connie Sutherland and The Marietta GWTW Museum for holding this memorial.
