My name is Karen Leathard and I live in a small town in Lancashire. I trained as a graphic designer and it was this interest in design that helped me to develop my love of needlework.

I started by making a range of character dolls but have recently found myself drawn to the more comical Gnomz. Making people smile when they see the quirky little characters gives me a great buzz.

Feel free to have a look at my gallery pages. I would love you to contact me if you wish to own one, have a question or even an idea for a commission. If the doll you like has been sold I can make another one but, please be aware, that no two dolls will ever be identical.

Prices start from £70 and depend on how much work is involved in the making.
