Karlene's Workshop

My sewing, refashioning and upcycling projects revealed

About Me

I am a wife and SAHM of two boys and I love to make stuff.

I sew, make patterns, bead, quilt, crochet, knit, refashion and am always thinking about that next project. Even when I am already working on several.

I also enjoy reading, dancing and chilling out with my extended family.

Over the years of my employment in the fashion industry and through donations from my family, I have acquired a large and ever increasing collection of fabrics and other textile resources that are begging to be put to good use.  Now that my boys are grown up a little and not so demanding of my time, my mission is to transform those piles into lovely things that other people will like and make some room for the new piles!
