It is with deep sadness we wish to announce to passing of..

Russell Ellsworth Groff, weaver, teacher, author, publisher, champion of handweaving, and for 57 years the proprietor of Robin and Russ Handweavers, passed away on January 3rd, 2010, at the age of 85. For the last week, as the news of Russell’s passing has spread, the words have sprung from lips and keyboards: “It’s the end of an era.” And it is, in the sense that we have lost another of a wonderful generation of weavers. But Russ Groff and his contemporaries were not interested in endings, but in beginnings.
