    Get to know Karen (in her own words): I've always loved dolls. My tenth birthday present from my mother was an honest-to-goodness sewing basket filled to the brim with supplies, and a Barbie pattern. I was in heaven! I sewed throughout my high school years and then began again when my great nieces received American Girl dolls. My teenage sons were horrified that their mother was playing with dolls. During that time I also discovered Liberty Jane patterns. Wow--stylish, detailed patterns for dolls with fantastic instructions and a beautiful fit! Before I realized what was happening I was designing my own patterns. Partnering with PixieFaire, as a seller and designer, has been such a fun adventure! I'm grateful to those of you who have become customers and friends along the way. This pattern is my thank you to all of you--enjoy!  

     

    Get to know her a little more with this fun Q and A interview!

    Q.  What's your favorite food?

    Karen:  There isn't much I don't like.  But if it packs some heat it will usually be high on the approval list.  Chiles, salsa, Szechuan, Thai….bring it on! I do make exceptions for dark chocolate.

     

    Q.  What's your favorite tv show, movie, or book?

    Karen:  I like NCIS and The Great British Baking Show, and love the 1995 A&E version of Pride and Prejudice.  The David Suchet series of Hercule Poirot stories is wonderful, too!  Return to Me and Babette's Feast are two of my favorite movies.  Favorite book?  That's like trying to name a favorite child.  But I enjoy reading anything by C.S. Lewis, Dorothy Sayers, James Herriot, Jane Austen, and George MacDonald.  Tom Sawyer and Tolkien's Lord of the Rings trilogy are other favorites.  

     

    Q.  Coffee or tea?

    Karen:  Both.  Coffee with strong flavors and tea with more delicate ones.  Except for ginger tea.  It's a stand-alone any-time-of-the-day drink.  (As I think about it, it's probably because of the heat factor.)

     

    Q.  Where's your favorite place to shop?

    Karen:  I can get lost for hours in a used bookstore.  I also love cruising through fabric stores, art supply stores, nurseries, and produce stands.  When I visited the downtown flower market warehouse I felt like I was stepping into Oz!  Basically, anything that deals with color is very appealing.

     

    Q.  What inspired your brand name?

    Karen:  It's a play on the Forever 21 store name.  My husband loves puns and I think it rubbed off on me.  

     

    Q.  What is your dream vacation?

    Karen:  There's so much I'd like to see..but anywhere with beautiful scenery where I can paint is a plus.  I'd love to visit Israel and spend a lot of time in Italy and Switzerland.

     

    We'd love to hear from you. Leave a comment and tell us - which look is best! And be sure to thank Karen and the Pixie Faire team for giving away such cute outfits!

    Thanks, everyone!

    The Pixie Faire Team
