Who’s at WhipUp

by KateG on 14/07/2013

in Whip-Up

We are Jules and Kate, and we are very proud to be working with Kathreen’s family on WhipUp. We thought you might like to know a bit about us.

We have both been working with Kathreen on WhipUp in one way and another for a few years, and between the three of us we’ve shared hundreds of pots of tea and more projects and crafting talk than we can remember.

I’m Jules and I live in Canberra with my love and my three daughters. I am a mother, wife, crafter, baker, dishwasher, story reader, paper airplane builder, wound dresser, hug & kiss giver and all round mess maker. I blog sporadically at procrasticraft.com  but am more likely to be found on Instagram or Twitter. As well as having an unhealthy fabric obsession, I am stitching and crafting obsessed. I dream of slow. Stitching and baking help me find that pace I so desire.

I’m Kate, and I also live in Canberra with my busy, noisy, wonderful family. I make all kinds of things, and my favourite materials to work with are fibre, yarn, fabric, dye, paper, hardware and food. I’m not very good at sitting still, so I almost always have a project of some kind in my hand, and lots of projects on the go at all times. I spend possibly too much time online, and I am constantly in awe of people whose creativity makes the world a better place.

As you can imagine, we are still finding our feet, but we are excited to work with the WhipUp community to keep this site as a place to celebrate creativity and hand-made.  We would love to hear from you.

Jules and Kate

Thank you for keeping Whip Up going, I’ve been reading from the very beginning. It is a special place, and a testament to Kathreen’s drive and creativitity.

I am so glad you two are continuing. I don’t recall when I found Whip Up, but I know that every time I see a post pop up in my reader, I have a sense of community and tenderness. Thank you for carrying on with this!

I’m so glad to see that you are keeping WhipUp going. It’s a daily touchstone for me to visit this site. Kathreen is and was a kindred spirit, and you must be, as well. Thank you for jumping in! I know she would be happy to see this happen.

So glad to see that this great resource is going to continue. Is there any way I can purchase an action pack?

Hi Hayley, currently we are not able to sell Action Pack, but as soon as this is sorted, I will certainly let everyone know. Thanks for your thoughts and interest in Action Pack. Kate

Thank you for keeping the site going. It feels right. I think of Kathreen and her children regularly. I hope they are starting to heal and can feel the sunshine on their faces.
