Hi! I'm Kate, founder of the blog Tracing Threads. You can find me over there writing about life as a creative (whatever the heck that means), taking photos of old things, and making new things.

Yep, that's my happy.

I'm all about the process. I'm constantly experimenting and I don't gloss over the details. As a teacher I'll always be upfront about what works and what doesn't, so we can learn together.

I want us to make things we'll be proud to show off and actually use...
