Meet New
Neighborhood Group Chair
Kathy Hatch

Greg. They have two children. Daughter Erin is married to her son-in-
law Brett. They have two sons, Ethan and Ian. They are fortunate that
they live about 2 hrs away in Carmel In.

Son Patrick is single and lives in Chicago. He is the one who
challenged Kathy probably 15 years ago or so on something he wanted
which got her back into sewing. She made him a t-shirt quilt and an Irish
Double Chain quilt.

Kathy started sewing in the 4th grade with the help of one of her older
sisters. She worked with Kathy on a pair of gray wool culottes. Their
mother was an excellent seamstress. She loves to shop on the
secondary market. When she returned to work full time after completing
grad school, her mother altered any suits she had found (narrow the
pant legs, narrow the lapels and always needed, shorten the sleeves).
So Kathy had beautiful Pendleton, Austin Reed, etc suits that really fit!

She always had an interest in garment sewing and it was on Kathy’s list
to pursue further when she retired. Thus came her membership in ASG
and the neighborhood group in Champaign/Urbana. Kathy doesn't
think she will ever be as accomplished as her mother, but it gives me
something to strive for.
