Welcome Home

New Patterns

Never did I think I would work in a "series" but my door have seem to take on their own life. Request for a door for a guild in the Southern part of the country has created the new Blue Door.
With the popularity rising I have turned both of these now in to Patterns and there are a few Limited Kits available.
Next on the Hoizone is going to be a stone wall with a wood door. 
Check out the new patterns and kits at http://www.karenpharrstudios.com/shoppatterns.html

BryerPatch Studio, Paducah Ky

Bryerpatch Studios
 So last year this was one of the places I never made it too.  Now I know what I was missing.
Caryl Bryer Fallert has built a stunning studio called Bryerpatch in Paducah. She works and lives in this large beautiful building specifically built to house both her business and home.  Perfectly laid out to accomodate a show room, work room and upstairs living and personal Studio.  My friend Bridget who works for Caryl during Paducah week gave me a grand tour.

Paducah Class Room

Making Doors
All three classes went great in Paduach, the classes were moved to a whole new location but the students were great and classes were fun.
