Karen Roark practiced Interior Architecture for 12 years before opening an arts and crafts store in Kansas City, Missouri. There, she taught jewelry making classes and began designing sewing and knitting patterns which fused her love of crafting and design. Her husband, who is an architect, and their 3 very curious cats can be seen helping out on her current endeavor, the DIY blog www.ialwayspickthethimble.com. There you can find jewelry designs, tutorials, free sewing patterns and a peek at some home renovation projects too!
