la aguja mágica

I love learning new things and trying new techniques. I’ve done embroidery since I was young, and I have been following Laura Ameba’s work for a while hoping for the opportunity to learn with her. Laura recently came to London for an Aguja Mágica workshop, so I could finally meet her. I loved it and can't wait to finish my first magical embroidery!
