Since I was a little girl, I created something – a knitted scarf for my favorite Teddy Bear, a dress for a doll, or embroidered pillow for the dollhouse. Later I started making clothes for myself, quilted pictures for the walls of our house, and rugs for the bathroom. My teachers were my mother and my grandmother. They had the patience and the will to teach me everything they knew about handicrafts and hand embroidery. Later, studies and work took me far away from crafting.
After my daughter was born, I restarted textile arts and crafts – dresses for my baby girl, hand-embroidered Advent calendar, soft toys, knitted and crocheted clothes, embroidered pictures for her room… and since then, textile arts and crafts are always in my life.
My life has recently changed 180 degrees – I moved to live from Lithuania to Italy. Instead of being a busy businesswoman, I became a stay-at-home wife and mom.
This significant change gave me the possibility to do what I like the most – create!
Why hand embroidery?
I feel more confident after my studies at the Fashion Academy Roma (Istituto Moda Sgrigna – Accademia di Moda Roma). Now I know that I have the experience needed and formal education in textile arts. While embroidering more and more, I found that hand embroidery is a very relaxing craft with many benefits for our mental health and wellbeing. And while practicing for the school and creating, I’ve accumulated tons of information and experience that I would like to share.
I hope that this Blog will inspire You to create with your own hands, needle, and thread and that it will become the place you go to when you don’t know how to do something or feel a lack of inspiration.
