Hi, my name is Karen Thomas, I am an avid crafter who loves to try any new craft or technique that comes along. I have been dressmaking for more years than I care to remember. I have made wedding dresses, ball gowns as well as the usual skirts, tops and trousers. I also love making bags of all kinds. I am currently making knitted bags for wet felting. I make cards, jewellery and scrapbooks as well and have recently completed making the invitations,table settings and other stationery for a friends wedding. I also love to cross stitch and am at present stitching a large Dr Who montage that shows the faces of the 11 doctors to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Dr who, this is for my grandson who is Dr who mad. The finished piece will consist of 90,000 stitches so will take me some time to complete.
I sell my crafts through my Folksy shop at https://beta.folksy.com/shops/KarensKreations, please feel free to pop along and have a look. I also make things to order and custom make most items to suit your own requirements please contact me to discuss.
I have recently been on the readers review panel for World of Cross Stitching and have just confirmed my place on the review panel for a new sewing magazine, the first issue is due to be released towards the end of April 2014. I am half way up the first side of a knitted bag that is knitted in 2 colours so I am using Martha Stewart roving wool in Umbrella and Cherry Blossom, will post a picture once I have finished it.
