About Karen Soltys

Sewing, quilting, knitting, rug hooking—if it involves fabric or fibers, Karen Soltys is bound to have tried it. She began sewing doll clothes and then clothes for herself at an early age. Upon graduating from college, she discovered quiltmaking, and to this day is drawn to antique scrap quilts, traditional patterns, and the art of making do. Karen’s other favorite pastime is knitting—pretty much a daily activity for Karen, who is known to carry “emergency knitting” in her purse. In her role as managing editor, she works with authors to develop their ideas into quilting, sewing, knitting, and crochet books. Karen is the author of Bits and Pieces: 20 Small Quilts from Scraps and Fat Quarters, and has contributed designs to a variety of other quilting, sewing, and rug hooking books.
