At age ten she purchased her first sewing machine from a neighbor who taught her sewing basics. A former magazine editor and antique American folk art gallery director, she now loves being a blogging, stay-at-home-mom. She regularly draws upon her degree in art history for inspiration for her sewing, embroidery, craft patterns and activities with kids. Karin’s husband is remarkably patient while she does her best to balance being a full-time assistant to two children under four with her creative endeavors. Her goal? Do something creative every day.
