Meet Kathy White a.k.a. Katchkan!
Crochetville member since 2005

Brief Bio: Kathy is 51 years young and was born and raised in Spokane, Washington. She met her husband, Marv, during her senior year in high school and eloped with him that spring. That was 33 years ago! Together they have raised two girls, and are the proud grandparents of 3 grandkids.

This interview is done in two parts. The first covers my visitation with Kathy at her house. The second part is a question and answer interview.

Part One: My Afternoon with Kathy

I had the good fortune of meeting Kathy back in November 2005 as we live relatively close (about a 2½hour drive) for lunch. She enchanted me with her Irish crochet pieces and told me the secrets of how to make my own lace pieces. Any member of C'Ville who has been around long enough has become familiar with Kathy's original designs ranging from Irish crochet lace pieces to her recent birthstone themed doilies.

My interview with Kathy was an amazing six hours of not only seeing her exquisite masterpieces but also included time travel!
