Kathy Cano Murillo, 'The Crafty Chica' tells her story at South Mountain Community College Performing Arts Center in Phoenix, on Thursday, March 31, 2016.

KJZZ is partnering with the Arizona Republic to bring you the Arizona Storytellers project on the radio. Storytellers in Phoenix share their stories at live events in town. Some of the stories are about living here, some are not.

In the late 1980s, Kathy Cano-Murillo was a bridesmaid in her brother’s wedding. Kathy says she was "holding steady at a size 10" but she had a plan to lose more weight. Kathy was feeling confident and ordered her bridesmaid dress in a size 8.  So for two months, Kathy did everything she could to lose weight.

Kathy Cano-Murillo is a crafter in Phoenix known as The Crafty Chica.

The next storytelling event is Wednesday, May 18th at the Rebel Lounge in Phoenix. To learn more about the Arizona Storytellers project or how to tell your own story, visit
