There are no words that can explain how sad so many feel right now at the sudden loss of our friend Kathreen Ricketson and her partner.Rob Shrugg She was a force of nature in promoting handmade through her site Whip-up and craft in her books and how to raise fun loving children through her Action-Pack publications.

There is something we can do though to honor their memory and help their beautiful children. Consider it - here.
