Everything at Karen’s RopeWork is handmade in Muskoka. I make rope nautical decor using rope and knots as my inspiration – lamps, doormats, doorstops, finials, curtain tiebacks, and nautical wedding decorations can be found online at my etsy store or locally at craft shows and farmers’ markets. A sailor myself I just love the smell and feel of rope, it reminds me of my love of the water.
I love water, any water, the sea or lakes. I love finding new items and coming up with new ideas. My inspiration is all around especially living by the lakes in my log cabin. On a cold winters day, when I can’t be on the lakes I love nothing more than sitting in my rocker by the fire tying my knots. In the summer I sit on my deck in the summer sun. What could be better?
