Karen Stevens

For the last 25 years, Karen has been a freelance CAD instructor, training textile and fashion designers to create knits, prints and wovens for the garment industry. But these days you're more likely to find her in her creatively cluttered studio than on her computer, adding one more patch to a favorite pair of jeans, or naturally dyeing a pile of vintage linens. Karen shares her love of visible mending, natural fibers, hand dyed fabrics, educating others on the joys of slow stitching and using mending as an art form. Karen has a Fine Arts degree from Skidmore College, and an Associates Degree from FIT in Textile Surface Design. She lives in rural Northwest CT with her family, a menagerie of pets wearing party hats, and an indigo dipped laundry line. "You repair the thing until you make it completely." - Louise Bourgeois
