Hand Sewn Treasures

I wish I had more time in my life to learn how to needlepoint and do embroidery.


I recently found these miniature shrines called “détentes.” Détente means “relax of strained relations or the easing of tensions.” They are found throughout Europe and Peru.


Vintage détente purchased in an antique shop in Peru.

I think our next offsite for my office will be at Purl in Soho. We can learn how to needlepoint, do embroidery, and knit. So fun.
