About the author: Karen is a sewing/textiles blogger in Washington, DC who started this blog with the amazing Bella, a cat who is also queen of the universe. When not playing with Bella, Karen loves to read (Librarian!), travel, bike ride, cook, eat, and sew vintage, which seems to be the type of clothing that fits & flatters me! I also share textiles from the collection my husband & I have been able to amass while living overseas & on our travel thru 65+ countries.

This site contributes to its own setup, maintenance, and expansion costs with the occasional affiliate link. For example, if you follow a link to Shopify (which does an amazing job of hosting our online store) and decide to sign up with them, they’ll know we sent you and will be much more inclined to bring out the best china when we pop over for a cup of tea. This is limited to products we think are genuinely noteworthy rather than a shady operation handing over an enormous bag of cash to say nice things about them.
