Illustrator, Instructor, Embroideress
Growing up, we gave each other handmade gifts in our family, and not of the mix-tape variety. It was a matter of learning new skills to create cool gifts. One year I embroidered on a t-shirt for my dad’s birthday gift, and I was hooked. Bilingual French/English, I grew to love Spanish in the middle school classroom of the very elegant Mme Lorca. Travel to Latin America and a Master’s Degree in Hispanic studies followed, and traveling to lush tropical regions is always a delight. I believe we can each help save our planet by making eco-conscious choices, so I buy vintage and thrifted clothing and update my pieces with mending and embroidery. Every day is Earth Day as far as I’m concerned!
Perhaps you think you're not "good at" embroidery, or maybe you believe you must be "talented" at needlework.
Talent is not involved.
- a little patience
Let us guide you.
- learn just a few stitches at a time
- spend some time in the flow state, reducing stress
- build self-confidence
- find your inner artist
Why buy new clothes over & over again when you can revive what you have and help save our planet?
Frequently asked questions
Will I have to buy lots of supplies?

What if I've never embroidered before?
It's about time you started! You'll discover a very pleasurable activity and this course can get you started with the basics, plus the final project is something you can wear and be proud of!
How many stitches will I learn?
Two stitches are used in the embroidery of the flowers and leaves: the chain stitch and the stem stitch. You'll use a standard sewing stitch to sew on the beads.
