Although it’s reality I am still in denial. It so hard to believe. Please keep the Watkins family in your prayers as well as the Sew community. Vatsla #fashionbehindtheseams I know you’re in a good place right now. R.I.G. No questions please as I know nothing outside of the body has been identified. 🙏🏼

My sweet sister...my friend...my funny instructor. My heart aches as we receive confirmation that you are no longer here with us. Tears fall as I think about your children who only knew the beautiful, ambitious and tenacious spirit of their mother for only a few years and months. My sweet friend I hope you know that we all held on to hope until the very end. And even now our hope is not failed because we know you to be in the arms of our Father whom you loved so dearly. We mourn, but we don’t cry as those who have no hope...our tears fall simply because we can’t express through words how much you meant to us and how severely we will miss you. Thank you so much for every contribution your poured into my life, both personally and professionally- you were never too busy and I am eternally grateful for that. This is not goodbye...just see you later. ❤️ With much sadness, love and light.
Her family shared that this beauty my sew sister suffered from depression and anxiety and that social media has an ability to show only the best times. Oh how I understand this way to deep which is why I share it all. This just breaks my heart. You just don't know what others are going through. Please be kind to your fellow human. You will need compassion one day. If you need an ear please reach out or just throw an emoji in my DM. I can start the conversation. This has been a very emotional day. God bless his people🙏🏾. Definitely taking a break for a minute.
With news slowly coming in about our dear sewing sister, Vatsla Watkins @fashionbehindtheseams from Charlotte NC, it was surprising to read today in local news about her mental health and fight with depression. So many of us share a similar fight and don’t reach out to someone, friend, family member or professional help. While we don’t know why she is missing I pray she returns soon and safely, she is loved and missed by so many. #fashionbehindtheseams#weloveyouvatsla
Anyone in the NC area, please if you see this woman please call 911. She has been missing since Monday and her whereabouts are unknown. Everyone is so worried. My stomach is in knots and my head hurts just with the possibilities. Praying for her return to her young family. 😢😢😢😢 #vatslacomehome#vatsla#fashionbehindtheseams#iamprayingforyou

Vatsla my sister, this feels like a horrible nightmare...a disturbing show from which I can’t turn the channel. I think of you every few moments, fighting back tears, unable to open my mouth but praying God hears the cries in my mind only wanting you returned safely to your husband and beautiful children.
I don’t want this to be real anymore.
