Gabriela (or Gabi for short) is a talented stitcher who will be sharing her take on Portuguese embroidery - a mix of modern and old, with a generous dash of friendliness, and maybe even a Portuguese lesson or two...
A little bit more about Gabi:
Gabi learned to embroider as a child. Later, she asked her daughter if she wanted to learn. Her daughter replied: "The needle pricks!” This fear of learning was familiar to her - as a university professor for many years, she taught complex formulas that were difficult to learn. She strongly believes that we can teach ourselves to face our fear… with needles as with complex formulas… when used with the head and the heart, the needle doesn’t prick!
Gabi's shops agulha não pica and worldonlap were born from this motivation. Her shop name, agulha não pica, literally means: "the needle doesn’t prick." Her embroidery kits, craft products, and her posts are all inspired by Portuguese traditions.
Look for Gabi here on Thursdays, when she'll be blogging Stitches With Portuguese Soul. So great to have you here, Gabi! :)
