About Karen

Since moving to Whitstable from North London over 15 years ago, I realise that I could never have fulfilled my dream of being creative if I hadn’t moved.
I come from a background of tailoring and retail in the rag trade. My family were among the most prominent in the fashion business for 2 decades, but I inherited the sewing skills from my grandfather.

I love sewing,and making quirky goodies from my “stash” of fabrics, trim and vintage clothes….and I really let my imagination run riot!

I love the handmade aspect of my work, particularly when I am making bespoke curtains,roman blinds and cushions.

Even more so when I remake a customer’s existing curtains.
