Meet Karen Barbé

Karen Barbé is a designer, embroiderer, author, and educator based between Santiago (Chile) and Chicago (US). 

Karen translates evocative worlds of home, traditional crafts and comfort into textile surfaces through embroidery. Karen’s first book “Colour Confident Stitching” (Pimpernel Press, 2017) presents a simple and hands-on method for understanding color and encouraging readers to create their own palettes for stitch projects. 

She regularly hosts workshops where she teaches hand embroidery techniques in different levels.
