We're gearing up for 2021 with another run of Karen Lewis' Textile Fabric Club. Every other month you will receive a bundle of ten coordinating hand printed panels by Karen Lewis, perfect for a variety of projects. Each panel measures 14" x 18", printed on solid textiles from Figo Fabrics. In addition to the bundles from Karen we are offering a fabulous mixture of wovens that will be sent to you during the remaining months. Every other month you will receive five 1/2 yard cuts of coordinating wovens and Kona solids. For the duration of your membership, Karen will be giving members a 10% discount on all items in her shop. We hope you will join us for an exciting journey of texture and color!

Karen was born and brought up in Leeds, West Yorkshire in the UK where she learned to sew and knit with her grandmother. It was several years later, after turning her back on her formal education and teaching career, that she came back to her crafting roots.
While living and teaching in London, Karen met her husband and together they brought up their 3 children there, but when they moved back to Leeds in 2004 she left her teaching career behind and started her crafting business Blueberry Park. Karen always had a passion for textiles, pattern and color and after a brief silkscreen printing course in 2011, she set about teaching herself more about this technique in order to design her own fabric
