A terribly sad day for the crafting world

I have just learnt about the tragic death of Kathreen Ricketson, founder of Whip Up and the Action Pack magazines. Her partner, Rob is still missing, presumes death and they leave behind their gorgeous children. My heart is breaking for them.

I 'met' Kathreen through the crafty community years ago, she has guest posted here and I have on Whip Up and the Action pack Magazines. She was currently touring Australia for the year with her family and writing a book about their experiences. Kathreen was so generous and kind and I am sure she has helped millions of crafters over the years. She will be sorely missed.

The announcement of the tragedy is here and more info about what happened here.
