Karen Colburn is a Woods Hole native who has been creating original, hand stitched and
hand-pieced quilts and bags for over thirty years. All of her products are designed for everyday use and enjoyment.
For her backpacks, Karen transfers her whimsical drawings of ocean life onto fabric and
appliqués each one individually. The Wood Handled bags, based on a Turkish shopping tote
in Karen’s collection, are also hand quilted. No two bags are alike. For her quilts, Karen hand-pieces each one in her Woods Hole Studio.
