Description

Karen just loves her old Irish Singer sewing machine and you can’t fail to be inspired by her skill with just thread and the basic zig-zag stitch.

We get to see how with no feed dogs and changing the tension in the bobbin, Karen creates lace and other works of art which she adds to her textile projects.   This has obviously been a life-long love affair to create this level of skill however we can see how easy it is to cover threads, use thicker threads, to create texture.

Originally a fashion designer Karen now enjoys turning her talents to textile art;  to learn more about her click here:

We have two other enjoyable videos with Karen:

Singerie and Lace Skirts

and she has an upcoming exhibition in New York that will be running at the Rebecca Hossack Gallery entitled On the Edge of the Woods 15th Oct – 5th Nov 2014  click here for more details:
