    Karen K. Stone classes?

    I've always admired Karen's talent and quilts, and always bemoaned that she didn't have an online presence that I could ever find.

    I'd like to take a class from her now that I'm retired, but haven't a clue how to find her schedule...any ideas?

    Preferably Washington Oregon Idaho Arizona Texas New Mexico Nevada...

    That is going to be tough. Has she written any books? You could try to contact her thru her publisher.

    She has a number of books out, plus stand alone patterns, plus Electric Quilt stuff (don't have eq)

    I did send an email to a landing page for her on what looks like the start of a website but it didn't get very far so don't know if that is her address or not.

    there is a Karen K Stone on face book where it looks like people often about about patterns, but it isn't quilter Stone

    From a biography on Golden Valley Quilt guild, I see that she lives in Dallas, TX. A search of Quilt Designer Karen K Stone, Dallas TX lead to this: http://www.goldenvalleyquiltguild.or...e-Applique.pdf

    It seems to have her address on the top... Maybe send a snail mail letter?

    I'm pretty sure she had a workshop at my guild a few years ago. I go to so many I forget who is who.
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.
    Being cheap is not a badge of honor.
    My heroes are working people, paying their own way, taking care of their children and being decent human beings.

    Hi--Karen was featured on The Quilt Show recently. If you haven't already seen the episode, you should. She lived next door to Janis Joplin growing up in Port Arthur, Texas! Here is some contact info from
    http://www.karenkstone.com/ According to that landing page she is developing a new web site "coming soon." If you do find her teaching schedule, please post back here. ;->)

    Right now she is traveling the show circuit, has another fabulous award winning quilt! She often does classes/ workshops at big shows and some retreats. When browsing the offered classes/workshops for upcoming shows I often see her on the list

    I have the Karen Stone book and made the Cinco de Mayo and Indian Orange peel from the book. I printed out the patterns from her software that works with eq5. I have never been able to contact her even after several emails. I had questions for the cinco de mayo....in the end I figured it out.

    I did write to her and enclosed a SASE, we'll see
    Yes, I made a point to watch the Quilt Show with her.

    Thanks again for your suggestions

    I, too, tried to contact Ms. Stone through the e-mail on the landing page of her website when I was looking to purchase one of her old patterns a couple of years ago. I never got a reply. By the way, the "new web site coming soon" message has been on there for years (since about 2008 or so). Karen K. Stone used to write/publish patterns and published dozens of very popular patterns. I believe that she did have a more extensive website when she was selling her patterns. Her sense of design and colour is unique. When I started quilting in the early 2000's, her paper piecing patterns were all the rage. I know she wrapped up the pattern company many years ago and moved to Beaumont. I don't know why she doesn't just list her upcoming classes on the website. There are a lot of people who would like to take her classes (including me) and would like to know her teaching schedule! I don't think the web page is ever updated and I wonder if she checks the e-mail address listed on the page.
