Some of Karen's first projects started out with hand sewn outfits for fashion dolls sewn while watching TV and a special program that will take you back in time "The Leave It to Beaver Show." Her mother picked up on her interest and started teaching Karen how to use her sewing machine which led the both of them working together to make her own school clothes. Their are a lot of advantages of living out in the open air and country living, such as having a 4-H Club. Karen had neighbor's that actually started one and helped her with the art of sewing techniques and working with fabric. With Karen's accomplishments with the 4-H club all their item's were displayed at the State Fair; now I would call that a honor! Part of Karen's schooling included a great Home Economics class and at the end of her 9th grade year, all the girls organized a spring tea and fashion show for their moms featuring outfits they had made for themselves. Their were skirts, jackets, and top, and they even made cookies and punch.
Living in the country you have good and bad times as I'm sure you know. Well Karen had a bit of a bad spell in which at that time her loving mother taught her another skill by picking up the needles and learned to knit. Karen kinda set aside some of her talent and put her hands to work with the love and enjoyment of knitting socks and things for babies.
All her beautiful work still comes from her home studio where she does her sewing, design, alter clothing, knitting plans, making gifts or custom projects for family and friends;
