About Us


store owner

Hello everyone.

I'm Karen, and I'm the creative mind behind Kernow Designs.

I am 47 years old. I took a long career break to raise my young family.⠀Two are now grown & living away from home & one is in college.⠀Another two are in high school.⠀

It doesn't seem possible. (It passed while I blinked.)⠀I was miserable being back in work. Long hours, 7 days a week, late shift changes with barely any notice. No appreciation of my hard work at all. Ever.⠀So I took the plunge and quit my job. I decided that I only have one life so I was going to live it in a way that made me smile instead of cry. 

It is a big risk but it is also one I simply had to take.⠀I started my own handdyed yarn and handwoven accessories business.⠀I turned my passions into something which I can share with you all. :)

Will it fail? Will it succeed? Honestly I don't know. But the important thing for me is that I'm giving it a go.⠀(I am determined that I will not reach 50 years old and sit there thinking "what if" I survived cancer only to realise later that I was actually just surviving my day to day life.)

I know that I'm lucky. I have this amazing chance and I'm grasping it for all that I am worth.

I'm also a part of a wonderful, amazing fibre community and for that I am truly thankful.⠀

Wishing you all happiness, may your dreams always make you smile. xx
