Thanks so much for stopping by! I’m Karlie Belle (Belle is my middle name BTW), and I’m a busy wife and mom with a serious craft addiction 😂. I live in the New Orleans area with my husband and 2 girls, Abigail and Elise. I first became obsessed with machine embroidery when I was pregnant with Abigail in 2012 and set out to learn how to do it myself. I learned after a lot of trial and error and it took a long time to figure out what worked and what didn’t. So when I started KarlieBelle.com, I wanted to make the process of learning machine embroidery easier for others!
