Juki America National Educator
Karen's first love of sewing began with garments and home décor, a love for quilting later followed.
Her love for quilting lead her to become a national teacher and award winning quilter with quilts shown in both International Quilt Shows and Art Galleries.
Prior to working for Juki Karen was the owner of Karen Pharr Studios.
While Karen loves quilting, her true passion is fabric and she often combines the techniques of quilting and garment construction with wonderful results.
As a national teacher, pattern designer and author, Karen loves to help students develop new fun and creative techniques which they can apply to their own sewing style.
A "yes you can" attitude always flows throughout her classroom so everyone can become the stitcher they want to be.
When Karen is not sewing you will find her in her kitchen testing recipes for her other passion, writing cookbooks!
