Karen Sydney

Textile artist and designer, dressmaker, embroiderer.


About me:

I make.  Mostly with fabric and thread.  I grew up in a family of seamstresses, so sewing is both nature and nurture for me.  As I’ve grown into an adult, other crafts have joined the party: embroidery, printmaking, fabric manipulation.  This site is a chronicle of my adventures in fabric.


About the name:

NOVEMBER —  1) I was born in November.  On the 13th, if you’d like to send gifts.  🙂      2) Joss Whedon’s 2009 TV show “Dollhouse” had a character named November.

COOL —  Roget’s Thesaurus says “cool” is an informal synonym for “creative.”
