Karen LePage is a wise, soulful friend and I cherish her. She’s the one I hang out with after a long day at Quilt Market, eating ice cream by the fire pit with our shoes off.
She is a shoes-off type of a person. I feel really good around her beaming, grounded energy. And she is a super talented seamstress. Is that OK to say? Is that a bad word now, like waitress? Should I call her a stitch server? How about Sewing Ninja Princess or Awesomeness? She’s more like a magician than anything– turning ordinary quilting cotton into this smooth, drapey substance that looks like high fashion couture.
