From Portugal with love...

I was a teacher of "grown up" students for 15 years… Instead of needles and embroidery hoops I’ve used formulas and graphics which seemed tough to learn. Soon enough I’ve learned that the fear for what is difficult is a fearless enemy to those who are keen on learning and that the fear is overcome with our mind and heart… With needles as with complex formulas. To challenge the fright of learning what seems hard I pledged myself that the needle doesn’t prick, strongly believing that we can teach ourselves to face the fear, even if it is with needlework….

With the needles and following our traditional embroidery I’ve found out much about Portugal which moved me in every product I’ve shaped.

Discovering Portuguese crafts I came across traditional products that surprised me and encouraged me to reinvent applications for its use.

Soon I met cork and although I cannot say it is mutual, I have a big crush on cork… Then burel came into my life, too... And I continued searching for inspiring Portuguese traditional craft materials.

Here you'll find craft materials and kits that teach craft skills inspired by Portuguese culture... Come and see for yourself...

    I learned to embroider by myself as a child. As an adult, I asked my daughter if she wanted to learn. She answered: - The needle pricks! I wanted to show her that it doesn’t… When used with the head and the heart, the needle does not prick!!
