Quilting with Karen
From quilting customers:

“I made an appliqué quilt for my friend for her 60th birthday and wanted the quilting to be special. I sent it to Karen and told her to do whatever she thought would look good. It turned out awesome. Absolutely beautiful. Thanks Karen. My friend is going to love it.” ~ Donna Davis, Aiken, SC


“Karen does an excellent job quilting my quilts. She puts in a lot of time just thinking how it should be quilted. She is my only quilter.” ~ Jan Henninger, Wadmalaw Island, SC

“Karen has machine quilted several of my quilt tops. I have simply turned my creations over to her and the results have been fabulous. She possesses both skill and imagination in her quilting technique. I highly recommend her!” ~ Marianne Powell, Summerville, SC


Quilting with KarenKaren stands out because she allows the quilt top to determine the best stitching patterns to enhance the quilt’s design. Her quilting density is always appropriate for the piece and her artistic skills shine through in the finished product. She shows great versatility in her design motifs, producing quilts of fine quality. I am pleased with the work that she has done for me, and I will be using her services again”. ~ Nieta Cleveland, Tamassee, SC


From longarm quilting students:

“Karen’s class Fantastic, Fabulous Feathers which I took during the 2012 Quilters of SC retreat in October was amazing. After owning a longarm machine for over two years, I was ready to learn some new skills, especially feathers, but was reluctant to try on my own. Karen’s class gave me the skills and confidence needed to now quilt feathers on quilts for charity and customers. Loved your quiet teaching style and your tips as we learned. Thanks again.” ~ Libby Singletary, Dalzell, SC

“You certainly took the fear out of feathers. Thank you for giving us the confidence and encouragement to create beautiful freeform feathers. It Quilting with Karenwas really painless and so much fun! This was a class well worth taking. Thank you, thank you.’ ~ Dee Doebler, Batesburg, SC

“Karen is a very patient teacher who has amazing quilting skills. I took her class on feathers and couldn’t even draw a feather let alone quilt one when we started. By the end of the day she had me quilting feathers of all kinds that anyone would be proud to claim as their own!” ~ Susan Morris, Lugoff, SC

“... As a beginner longarm quilter, I have gained the confidence to step out and try things I never would attempt before. The major stress is gone and I’m having fun quilting!” ~ Sylvia Strange, Chester, SC

Quilting with Karen“I have taken two quilting classes with Karen. Both classes were fun and very informative. She is a very organized teacher and I learned a lot in the time spent in the classroom part of the class. After learning to draw the quilting motifs on paper and then watching Karen demo the technique it was easy to go to the longarm machine for the hands-on part of the class. I highly recommend her as a teacher and plan to take more classes with her.” ~ Marj Coldiron, Aiken, SC
