Biography

Karin Jordan blogs at Leigh Laurel Studios from Exeter, New Hampshire. She grew up under her father's drafting table, making mini models out of cardboard scraps that fell to the floor. With a part-time job at age ten, she bought her first sewing machine from a neighbor friend and taught herself how to use it. Throughout a variety of careers — magazine editor, public relations director, owner of a home and garden boutique, and antique American folk art gallery director, Karin has simply wanted to make beautiful and fun things. She regularly draws upon her degree in art history for inspiration for her sewing, quilting, craft patterns and activities with kids. Karin is currently on the Pellon and Sizzix design teams, and is a featured designer on allfreesewing and favequilts. Karin's husband is remarkably patient while she does her best to balance being a full-time assistant to two children under five with her creative endeavors. Her goal? Do something creative every day. She can be reached at leighlaurelstudios [at] gmail [dot] com.
