The global craft community, and indeed the community in general have been deeply saddened by the sudden loss of Kathreen and Rob. It's impossible to fathom what their kids, family and friends are going through. Terribly, terribly sad. Completely unfair.
If you'd like to do something to help, please head here. The family has consented to a trust being set up for Otilija and Orlando, Kathreen and Rob's much travelled, awesome kids. It's something we can all contribute in a small (or large) way at a time when many of us are feeling a bit powerless.
Kathreen was a blogging pioneer in Australia. A champion of handmade and a founding pillar of the craft movement here in Australia (with a reach that was undeniably global.) She profiled countless crafters and artists through her amazing blog Whipup and the books she wrote. Her voice will be sadly missed, but not forgotten.
We've been so lucky to have her in our little world, haven't we?
