I learned with great sadness this morning of the sudden death of Kathreen Ricketson, founder of Whipup.net and a longtime mentor and friend to so many crafters through her online work and wonderful books. Whipup has been an inspiration for so many, including myself, and Kathreen was clearly much loved in the Australian crafting and online community. Her death has been a great blow, and has tragically left her two children orphaned.
