Instructor Bio: Sharing the joy for creating all things related to fiber and textiles is Karen's passion in life. Needle and thread were first placed in her eager hands at the age of six. Garment construction was her activity of choice throughout her teen years. She continued her education in this direction and earned a BS in Clothing and Textiles from East Carolina University. Motherhood never slowed her desire to learn more and hone her skills. During this period, she became a self taught spinner and weaver leading to commissions for liturgical items for local churches. When machine embroidery hit the home market, Karen dove in head first! With no prior computer skills, she learned digitizing and never looked back. Digitizing and creating her own patterns for garments, accessories and home d?cor continue to keep her busy and very happy. With these additional kills, she began to teach classes in beginner to advanced embroidery, digitizing and garment construction in her home studio. She has worked and taught in fabric shops and provided workshops for quilt guilds. In 2017, she became co-founder/owner of Threadhead and Company, LLC. Her company offers original patterns in embroidery, quilting, home d?cor and garments for the home sewist. In the same year, Karen was named Digitizer of the Year, Grand Prize Winner for John Deer's Adorable Ideas Digitizer's Dream Contest. Karen will continue to design and teach through her ambassadorship with Baby Lock.
