Crafting YouTuber Melanie Haim dies at 36

YouTuber and then Melanie Haim, who was known for stories about her art and personal life shared on social media, has died at the age of 36.

According to posts shared on her social media accounts, which were published by her husband Robert Haim, Haim died of cancer on January 12.

The caption of the Instagram post read, “With a heavy heart and deep sorrow I share the news of the passing of my lovely, wonderful, beautiful wife Melanie.” “If you’ve been following our journey, I’m sure you were as hopeful as us that she could defeat this insidious disease.”

Robert mentioned in the caption that he and his wife were only nine days away from their 16-year anniversary before his death. He praised the nurses, doctors and his family who helped Haim fight “to the end” of her cancer battle.

“Melanie fought like a warrior queen,” he wrote.

“Despite the deep sadness, my family and I feel that today we want to celebrate a wonderful woman and a happy life,” he said. “She was passionately loved, beautifully made, plentifully provided and was my best friend to the end.”

Her husband elaborated on how much her family and friends loved her, before encouraging her more than 46,000 Instagram followers to “put a toast of bourbon” in her honor, as it was her favorite drink.

On January 15, a post was shared on Instagram about the details of her funeral. A “celebration of life in the loving memory of Melanie Haim” was planned for January 22 at Crossroads Community Church in Valencia, Calif.

Haim’s YouTube channel, which has over 810,000 subscribers, offers crocheting, quilting, and sewing tutorial videos. Her final video, posted in April of last year, was a beginner’s guide for anyone learning crochet.

Back in November 2020, Haim posted a video about her cancer, revealing that she was still living with a tumor in her body.

The YouTuber noted that she had epithelioid angiomyolipoma, a rare type of sarcoma, which is “a term for a group of cancers that begin in bones and soft tissues,” according to Mayo Clinic,

Another Instagram user wrote, “Anyone who follows her YouTube channel will miss her a lot.” “But, she will live on forever among the people she inspired. Your entire family will always be in my thoughts and prayers.”
