I’m Karen Dennison and I live and breathe quilting!
I love it.
Ever since my youngest child left home several years ago and I converted her room into my sewing studio I’ve been hooked on quilting.
To start with I knew nothing about quilting, but I did know my way around my sewing machine having made clothes for myself and my children for many years.
I wanted to learn how to make some of the amazing creations I’d seen…and I wanted to put my own artistic touches to the quilt patterns. I wasn’t satisfied with simply copying patterns out of a book that someone else had written.
I knew I would need to have a good foundation in the quilting basics if I was going to produce quality products that would stand as heirlooms for the next generation.
So I attended classes. I spent many hours in draughty classrooms learning the fundamentals of quilting. I’ve made my share of mistakes, but I learned that “mistakes” can often unexpectedly turn into beautiful creations.
I didn’t realize how far I’d come until my friends started saying “Wow! That’s beautiful! I wish I could do that!”Well they can, and so can YOU! I want to share all that I’ve learned with you.
Here’s a video that talks about a special tool I’ve created to help share my knowledge and experience:
