About me

Gender Female
Location Oeiras, Portugal
Introduction I learned to embroider as a child. Grown up, I asked my daughter if she wanted to learn. She replied: - "The needle pricks!”. The fear for learning was familiar to me as I taught at the university formulas tough to learn. I strongly believe that we can teach ourselves to face the fear… With needles as with complex formulas… That’s why I always say: “once used with the head and the heart, the needle doesn’t prick!” agulha não pica* and worldonlap were born from this motivation… Inspired by Portuguese traditions I’ve been creating embroidery kits and other craft products. Many fruits of the mind and heart are my wish for everyone! *agulha não pica = the needle doesn’t prick
