"A Fabulous Person You Should Know!!" #teamunited80 #patronsofunited80
Hashtag long post.
Hello. Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Karen. I am a 56 year old woman of Barbadian descent. I trained as a dance teacher. I am a fashion designer, a sewing tutor and the mother of two grown women. I was a full time secondary schoolteacher for 28 years, pastoral leader for 15 of those. I've been sewing for over 40 years. I create beautiful handmade clothing for women who want to stand out. I teach people of all ages to fall in love with their sewing machine. I am an abuse survivor and a positive mental health advocate. I kicked Depression to the curb a few years ago and I spar with Anxiety but we're on nodding terms. I make conscious clothing choices every single day to help my mental well-being. I put me first. I wrote an ebook called '8 Ways to Wear Your Happy'. I bring good energy to most situations. I run a free monthly craft social for like minded crafters. I recently returned from a month teaching and volunteering in Zimbabwe. I host Wonder walks for creatives who need a reboot. I speak on craft, fashion, mental health, ageing and pretty much anything I'm knowledgeable and passionate about. I am committed to designing the rest of my life the way I want to live.I stopped dyeing the gray out of my locs because nah. I wear what I love. Some say I'm an inspiration. I say I'm finally doing me.
I am hosting my first event 'Wear Your Happy Live: An evening with friends' on Thursday 8th November. It's going to be 'lit' as some insist on saying. Limited tickets available by clicking the link in my bio. When they're gone, they're garrn.
