Karen Wisseman has owned Lickety Stitch Quilts in Lusk, Wyoming for 13 years. She has been sewing since childhood with a passion for fabric, sewing machines of all kinds, and quilting as a life-long hobby.

She started the shop on Main Street in 2010 and then added the building next door in 2017 to more than double the shop space. In 2023 another building was annexed for a classroom and retreat center.
