Sew Lulu Makes Debut At Chattanooga Market

Wednesday, September 3, 2014

Local Falling Water resident and native of Chattanooga, Karen Beam, had an opportunity to participate on Labor Day weekend at the Chattanooga Market. 

By day, Ms. Beam is vice president ofQuality and Clinical Performance at Parkridge Health System.  

She has found a hobby and passion in making crafts and sewing.  A few years ago after taking a corporate transfer to Nashville and being away from family and friends, she decided to invest in a monogramming machine to help fill her weekend time.  After making several dresses for her great-niece and shirts for her grandson, her friends and family encouraged her to use her talents and start a small business. 

She specializes in wreaths, scarves with collegiate logos, pillowcase dresses for toddlers, drool and burb pads for babies and decorative lawn flags. 

For customized orders, contact her at 423 326-4197 or visit her on the web at www.facebook.com/SewLulu.
