Karen Lewis is a screen printer, fabric designer, quilter and author of Screen Printing at Home and Wabi Sabi Sewing. She lives on the edge of Leeds, Yorkshire in the UK with her husband and three children. Much adored Cockerpoo, Scout, is also part of the clan and when Karen isn’t knee deep in paint and fabric, she and Scout can be found exploring around and about the fields by her house. Karen teaches printing and textiles at workshops around the UK and overseas, including Quiltcon, and is one third of the UK based collective The Thread House with fellow quilters Lynne Goldsworthy and Jo Avery.
Hand Stitched is inspired by the hand and handcrafts from the shashiko stitches of the clamshells to the needle turn applique of the leaves, celebrating the handmade element to our creations.
