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 International 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 Bailey, NC., with her husband Vince, and their dogs Harley and Shiloh.
