Obituary for David Page Coffin
David Page Coffin, 72, artist and editor, passed from this life at his home in Brookings, Oregon on May 2, 2021. He is known, nationally, for his work as editor of Threads Magazine as well as author of numerous books on sewing, tailoring and couture artware. His award-winning title on shirtmaking is still in circulation.
David’s passions included electronic music, guitar, the beauty of nature, and more specifically, the beauty of Oregon. His artistic creations included watercolors that traveled on exhibit to China (his birthplace), a commission for an Ohio State national championship, as well as a significant web presence in the U.S.
David is survived by his wife (Ellen Coffin), his mother (Elizabeth Coffin), siblings Kit, Winthrop, Ann and Sarah, as well as many nieces and nephews. A memorial service is planned for later in the year.
