Karen Krull's Profile

About

I have been sewing since I was 5 years old when I cut fabric out of my own clothes (to my mother's dismay) and took a needle and thread out of my mother's mending basket to make clothing for my little naked Troll dolls.
When I was a teenager I started sewing my own clothes and also taught myself to hand embroider using little kits and their instructions. I also learned to needlepoint and cross stitch and started drawing my own patterns to cross stitch and needlepoint when I couldn't find what I was looking for in pattern books.
As a young mother on a tight budget, I sewed much of my children's clothes, and spent many hours making cross stitched gifts for year round giving as a way to pass my time.
Now nearly fifty years later, I have pulled together my love of sewing, needlework and design into my little Etsy shop and a custom embroidery business.
