For a little background on Susana she started embroidering when she was 10 years old. Her dear aunt Isabel unknowingly opened the doors of this marvelous handmade universe to Susana. She has lived in various countries and her travels play an important role in who she is and her art. Have a peak at Lemon Dear Etsy site and the links above to learn more about this fun event. It looks like an amazing night.
