Get to know Karen Sherman (in her own words): "Designing came to me quite by accident. I have sewn for years and worked many years at a Bernina store. I was also teaching painting classes and designing and selling patterns at decorative painting conventions. My granddaughter was doing competitive cheer and she was also into American Girl dolls. She and her teammates wanted doll outfits to match their uniforms, so that became my new job. Keeping up with all the girls and the uniform business kept me busy for a couple of years. One day while she was with me, we discovered the Pixie Faire site. I was so excited to see all of the wonderful designs and the quality of what we saw. I submitted a design and was accepted. It has been a great journey and I have and am continuing to learn all the time. It has been a pleasure to design for Pixie Faire and the great staff. I love sewing for dolls!"

Inquiring Minds Want To Know...
Q: What's your favorite food?
Karen: As far as isolating what my favorite food is, that is not easy. Guess you could say that I am a steak girl. If given my choice of anything on the menu, I would probably choose steak. However, I am easy to please and like most things.
Q: What's your favorite tv show or movie?
Karen: Love some of the old dance movies. Always watch Dancing with the Stars. I grew up taking tap dancing. My mom and I would strike out once a week to a little town about 10 miles from home so I could take dance lessons. We did that for years, so it is kinda in my blood.
Q: Coffee or Tea??
Karen: I prefer coffee. Drink it every morning, love iced tea too.
Q: Where's your favorite place to shop?
Karen: Shopping is a fun thing that my girls and I do all the time. I have a daughter, two granddaughters and a great-granddaughter. The shopping bug has bitten all of us. My son and grandson, no so much. Love a great fabric store for sure.
Q: What inspired your brand name?
Karen: As far as what inspired my brand name, I’m not sure. Was looking for something cute and different to use as my name. I think the name was just a God thing. It just hit me one day and I guess it seemed like that was it. I will never forget when I had a booth at Quilt Market in Houston, people came by saying that they could not imagine what Jelly Bean Soup was when the booths were listed at the show. They had to come and see. That was fun!
Q: What is your dream vacation?
Karen: My dream vacation would be to go to Maine in the fall. Would love to see the trees turning and visit some of the vintage shops.
We'd love to hear from you. Leave a comment and tell us - which look is best! And be sure to thank Karen for giving away such a cute outfit!
