The crafting community is saddened today by the tragic loss of Kathreen Ricketson, craft book author and founder of Whipup.net, and her partner Rob Shugg. Our hearts go out to their children, family, and friends.

According to Whipup.net, an education fund is being set up for their two children. As soon as the details are available, I will update this post with a link. Further information can also be found on Whipup.net.

Update:
For those of you who would like to help, funds have been set up to receive contributions for the children. Details for both Australian and international donations can be found here.
