In this way, we help ensure that the great craft of embroidery is not forgotten. Even if it’s sometimes difficult to stitch up against the many prejudices and the eternal “my grandma did that too….”, we can do it!
On this page you will find textile events where you can meet one or the other of us and ask questions in person. If we can inspire you so much that you want to join us in one way or another: then all the effort was worth it!
