I run, I craft, I write, and I make your favorite clothes.

I have written books about sewing for children and adults and I'm the indie designer’s patternmaking secret weapon. I've taught video and in-person classes to anyone who would listen since 2008. I believe that sewing clothes is a radical act of self-love that increases your sense of self-worth. I'm basically your sewing fairy godmother.

I’m on vacation waaaay up north, but I received an email I just couldn’t resist sharing!  I’m so excited about the amazing experiences at 1000markets, as you probably know if you read here with any regularity, but this is really an honor, to be on the front page of the Fall 2009 Preview for Featured Markets!


If you haven’t shopped here, you really must try it out.  Of course, as a thoroughly satisfied Amazon customer, I’m thrilled that 1000markets accepts AmazonPayments and offers the same AtoZ guarantee it does on all the other merchandise I buy for myself, but having purchased clothing, make-up, soap, foodstuffs, and jewelry already from various merchants on 1000markets (reviews to come), I can say the shopping experience is as seamless and enjoyable as the merchant side of things.

    Congratulations Karen! I must say that it is my favorite piece of all. I love the jacket, the fabric, and the pictures of Ella. I am glad you are having so much success with 1000 markets. My business has been (0) on that site. However, I love the people, the wonderful comments, and the lovely designs and goods that are available there. Hope you are enjoying your vacation.

    Congratulations for being featured! Nels is wearing his Dillinger pants today – he looks very handsome.
