A little about Karen
Karen began her quilt making journey in 1997 when her sister,
Barbara, dragged her into a quilt shop, firmly stating that she needed a
hobby! Immediately hooked, Karen has been quilting, designing, and
teaching ever since. She is the past owner of 2 quilt shops, and
now owns a long arm machine quilting business and is a published author.
An award winning quilter, Karen states that what she loves most about quilting is the friendships she's forged, friendships that have sustained her through out the many moves she's made due to her husband's military career.
Today, Karen remains passionate about quilting, she loves sharing with other quilters through lectures, classes and workshops. She lives in Gainesville, VA., with her husband Vince, three children, Wayne, Shannah, and Travis, and her little dog, Harley.
