Katherine's special is Swedish weaving, also called huck embroidery. Her designs have a bit of a contemporary flare to them yet maintain a traditional look similar to those from the 1930s and '40s. Soon after discovering this craft, Katherine began selling hand-stitched items at shows and in local Scandinavian shops. She also started teaching, and it was her students who really encouraged her to look into publishing patterns. Just over a year later, her first book Easy-Does-It Swedish Weave Towels was published. Katherine now has a full line of chartpacks and kits that are distributed worldwide at her website www.SwedishWeaveDesigns.com.
