Karen Stevens

For the last 25+ years, Karen has been a freelance CAD instructor, training textile and fashion designers to create knits, prints, and wovens for the garment industry.

But these days you are more likely to find her in her creatively cluttered studio than on her computer, hand sewing a new garment, naturally dyeing fabric for a quilt, or adding one more vintage patch to a favorite pair of jeans. She loves to share her knowledge of visible mending and slow stitching, teaching a variety of classes on hand sewing skills, from bags to clothing.
