Katrina Perdue is a textile artist and maker living and working in Memphis, Tennessee. Her love for hand stitching has grown over the past twenty years from first learning machine sewing, quickly followed by hand knitting, and most recently to a full time studio practice focused on mending and repair. She is a Craft Yarn Council certified knitting instructor, and was selected to be a textile studio assistant at Penland School of Craft for a summer 2019 mending workshop.

Katrina was born and raised in the MidWest, spent several years living in the MidAtlantic, and now calls Memphis -- the heart of the MidSouth -- home. She and her partner, Hamlett, share a studio and a house along with their beautifully blended family of five sweet kiddos and two weird cats.
