About

Hey everyone! I'm Karen (but often get called Bessie and I'll answer to that, haha).  No fancy headshot here - with being a full time mom and full time business owner who has the time?  If I do have some free time, I'd much rather spend it curled up with a hot cup of coffee and a good book.

Things You Should Know About Bessie Pearl:

- All of the bias tapes and bindings are handmade by me at my home in Raleigh, NC.  I promise, this is not the same quality as what you buy in the store.

- Bessie Pearl was started as a creative business outlet after having my first child.  I have always wanted to work for myself and the introvert in me loves working from home!

- The company is named after my grandmothers, Bessie and Pearl.  Bessie had 4 daughters and made all of their clothes - can you imagine!

- Most products are offered for retail and wholesale.  Use the Contact form if you're interested in opening a wholesale account.  See the FAQ page for more wholesale information.
