Lifelong maker Kyle Burkhardt has sewn her own clothing and bags by machine for years. Intrigued by the charming appeal and convenient portability of embroidery, she started stitching pre-printed kits by hand five years ago. Kyle discovered that embroidery is a joyful, tactile form of meditation: rhythmic, relaxing, and stress-relieving. This work ranges from traditional sashiko (Japanese embroidery) to updated stitching with a delightful twist, and in styles ranging from chunky threads to detailed pieces.
