About Karen’s Thimble

People ask me how long I have been doing this.

 I respond with a question mark- “since I was 8 or 9 years old”.  My sister will answer for me “Forever!”

My mother taught me the basics of the needle arts (sewing, knitting, crocheting, embroidery). I could not get enough! My passion for any craft that included a needle and a thread further fueled my interest in learning more (including tatting)

My father often told me it was time to shut down for the night as I would be working on something long after everyone else went to bed.

Sewing has always been my favorite.  Creating something out of a flat piece of fabric or making a dress fit perfect gives me great pleasure and satifaction.

Raising a family forced me to often set my projects aside, but I never lost the love of the needle. My daughters enjoyed their option for custom gowns for proms, weddings.  Friends and family have enjoyed knowing who to call to do a repair or alteration.

So back to the question of how long have you been doing this?   I am going to agree with my sister – Forever! The name ‘Karen’s Thimble’ as created in 2016.
