Karen Stevens

For the last 25 years, Karen Stevens has been a freelance CAD software designer and teacher, training textile and fashion designers to create knits, prints and woven materials for the garment industry.

These days you are more likely to find her in her creatively cluttered studio than on her computer, adding one more vintage patch to a favorite pair of jeans or double gauze shirt, or dipping everything into an indigo vat.

Her love of visible mending, natural fibers, hand dyed fabrics and slow stitching has recently turned into a small side business, creating one of a kind stitched curiosities for her friends and web shop.

She recently moved back to New England (Southern VT) and is happy to feel back home.
