How Time Flies!

Already for some time, the idea kept running through my head.
To open a blog and propose designs explained step by step, publicize various embroidery techniques and ideas to share with you and answer your questions.
Thinking about the last 10 years, I see the evolution of our environment towards a globalized society and a more connected one.
So we, the embroiderers , let’s embrace it !
I would like to share the experience gained days after days with my friends, students and customers. Together we have achieved a lot of unpublished designs, often by using new techniques for all of us deriving from that process an immense pleasure .
I thought it was about time for you to enjoy it too. I sincerely hope you ‘ll be many to participate and help me to live this project.
Please join us now!
