Karen has always loved stitching, colors, and creating since she was a little girl. Stained glass, quilting, and knitting are a few of her previous interests that were replaced with her love of punch needle embroidery. Karen works with Rustic Country Handcrafts, creating punch needle patterns from the company's applique patterns. Karen's work can be seen in the current issue of Punch Needle and Primitive Stitchers magazine, as well as working with designers to create stitch models for pattern covers.
