Spring, A Good Time For New Beginnings

As most of you know by now, my website was hacked in January while I was on a 6 week trip out West.  Not fun, especially because I always would rather be dyeing fabric or sewing so I put off fixing the issues till now.  I apologize for the inconveniences it may have caused!

I have a new website I am currently tweaking the layout of now.  I have switched my store back to Etsy for the time being because I have found 90% of my business is commission based, so it is easier to just let Etsy do the work for me basically!

A lot has happened in the first few months of 2017!  To start I had 14 quilts and 4 table runners in an art show at the Crooked Tree Arts Center in Traverse City, Michigan for a month.  It was a great show and I really enjoyed being a part of it!  Below are a few photos from the show!

I was lucky enough to tag along on a photography trip to Telluride, Colorado, Moab, Utah, Salt Lake City, Utah and Jackson, Wyoming this winter.  It was an incredible trip and I promise to post about it and show photographs because I was insanely inspired by it!

Thanks for being so patient with me! I  will be blogging more regularly and updating everyone on what I have been doing!

Welcome to my website!

Kathryn Marie designs is my contribution to making life a little more beautiful.

I guess I should introduce myself,  I am a fashion designer by trade who grew up outside of Philadelphia.  I lived in the city for about 8 years then ventured down to south Florida and now reside in northern Michigan.  I have turned  my design focus from clothing (which I still continue to make and design) into modern quilts, home goods and fabric design.  I design from my studio loft in my log cabin.


I believe that a good creative workspace is a bit of a messy space.  I could clean my space and take a photograph, but then you wouldn’t get a feel for where my creative process actually takes place.

When I am not sewing, designing and dyeing fabric I am usually in the kitchen (my second favorite part of my cabin) baking.

So that is a little bit about me for now, I hope that you continue with me on my journey!
