Katherine Kennedy became enamoured with Swedish weave many years ago but couldn't find patterns for this new found needlework. Making her own designs was just the natural thing to do. Within just a short time, she was selling her items at shows and in local Scandinavian shops and started teaching. She now has a full line of chartpacks and kits that are distributed world wide. Katherine's inspiration for designs comes mostly from her head, but she really has been inspired by some of the old pattern books from the 30's & 40's that she was able to find. She lives in Minnesota with her husband Mark, and they have 6 children and 3 grandchildren.
