I've come back for my third time visiting this post!!!! THANK YOU for sharing these wonderful photos of Karin's creative space~ it's awe inspiring! I especially love the cabinet with all the drawers~ I know you guys are sorry to see Karin leave Chicago.... But we're happy to have her as an East Coaster.... Plus, now you have someone to visit in New York City!!! Nice job, my friend~

Beautiful! What a great room. Thanks for sharing it with us.


What a gorgeous room and how generous of Karin to invite you to stay with her. I'm lucky to have met her in person at a retreat once.

If Karin ever remembers what that piece with the lilac and black, please let us know!!!

Wow! What a beautiful stitching room - what fun! Thanks for sharing the photos. I wanted to let you know that I received the Cotton Bird project this week for the Colonial Gathering with Dyeing to Stitch. It is just wonderful - I had to start it right away, and I am truly enjoying stitching it. I am so glad that I was able to join this club. I am never disappointed with your projects. Keep up the great work.

Can Karin tell us where she got the magnificent skinny drawer cabinets? Oh, what envy I have for those.

Karin Zieren

The design is Blossom House by Prairie Moon and the cabinets with little drawers I found years ago at Ikea.

Such a beautiful, cozy room! I think if I have a craft room that lovely, I'd never leave the house. :)

Can you tell me who did the design for the patriotic queen pinkeep? It's so cute!

Karin Zieren

Thanks Jennifer! That is design is from Ewe Eye & Friends called Liberty House.

Makes me want to stitch too!! I envy her organization skills and I cover her scissors!!!
