I am deeply saddened to share that Kathreen, the founder of Whip Up, and her partner, Rob, have died in a tragic drowning accident while traveling. You can read the details here. I was shocked when I read the news last night and can't stop thinking about it. I can't imagine what the children and family must be going through, but I hope they will take some comfort in knowing how much Kathreen was loved and admired in the crafting community. If you would like to help, an education fund has been set up for the children with details here.
