 We would like to say, "Thank You" to our military. We will sew all your patches on your uniforms at no charge. Thank you for your service and God bless you!

Especially From Karen was born from a love of sewing. I believe in giving my clients quality work at a fair price.


Especially From Karen offers custom sewing and alterations for formal and bridal wear, day wear, classic children's clothing, home decor and holiday items. We do sewing and alterations repair.

We also sell classic children's clothing, women's apparel, home decor, holiday and other specialty items.


Change is always good and over the years, I've changed my focus of the type of merchandise I create.  Repurposing, vintage and upcycling items to make new items is filling my studio.  Vintage tablecloths to make aprons or Christmas tree skirts, vintage feedsacks changed into pillows or tote bags and neck ties to make gift bags all fill shelves and totes waiting to be turned into something new. Vintage laces are in boxes, along with vintage fabrics and trims.  Imagination is in over-drive.  I hope that you'll like the repurposing, upcycling and use of vintage.
