I’m Karen, I have lived in Arkansas since 1980 although I grew up in Wisconsin and lived there for the first almost 20 years of my life. My husband and I spent 9 years traveling and living in other states while he served in the US Navy. I have been quilting for a lot of years. I hand quilt, hand piece and machine piece, love needle turn applique. Besides quilting I love hiking, camping, gardening, reading & traveling . Quilting is the main craft that I enjoy although I can do other needle crafts and have worked in stain glass. I have been married since 1972 to the same guy and we have 2 daughters, 2 son-in-laws and 2 wonderful grandchildren from our youngest daughter . We have a small motorhome and enjoy traveling off and on throughout the year when my husband isn’t doing contract work. He is semi-retired.
I am a contributor to the Celebrate Hand Quilting blog and a member of the facebook groups “Celebrate Hand Quilting” and “Jane Stickle Quilt Group” both are closed groups but easy to join – just request it.
