This Week's Featured Crafter

I'd like to introduce you to Karen...she lives in the southeast part of Wisconsin with her husband Doug, They have three married sons, 5 grandchildren, and 2 furry little kitties; Lola and Baby.

She has enjoyed doing Penny Rugs for her own pleasure for the past several
years, and wanted to share her fun with others...after giving away many of her hand crafts. She started selling consignment, then progressed selling to retail stores. Side by sied with her husband, they do home shows and craft shows as well with much success, and now their new venture, their Web Store.

All of their products are made from 'felted' wool felt and backed with the same fabric or homespun. Double facing allows the table runners, mats and wall hangings to lay flat. The designs are exclusively KAREN'S and HAND STITCHED by her as well.
She also designs, draws, and handpaints grungy hang tags.

Karen's designs consist of sheep, willow trees, houses, crows, pineapples, stars, flowers, beehives & bees. For Christmas she has feather trees, gingerbread people, snowmen just to name a few. She also takes special requests.

Besides her Penny Rugs, Karen has added many Primitive - Country Decorative Items to her website, most of them hand made right here in the USA by some wonderfully talented artists, to help you decorate your Primitive home or ‘not so Prim home’

Visit Karen today...she'll have the coffee on! :)
