We have a dream!
For several years now, we have been continuously building our international competence center for textile design and training in hand embroidery. Preserving textile artisanship, bringing it into a modern shape - working with needle and thread will preserve its place in the 21 century.
This only works together with you!
We teach you the extensive knowledge of an artisanship popular worldwide and accompany you on the way to your own idea. It is a winding road that does not lead to material wealth. The joy of working with your hands, the knowledge to make a very important contribution to the mental health of the world - the joy that comes with it outweighs all the hardships!

You love textile design and do not consider hand-embroidery to be a dispensable relic from Great Grandmother's time. You can imagine becoming independent in this area. You know that in a small business everybody has to be able to do everything and that includes commercial knowledge, marketing, webdesign, computer skills and much more, and that does not scare you. You are not locally bound and also like to travel whenever necessary. You know that women / men in this industry will probably never become very rich. Passion inside you burns so strongly, that the problematic side, which an independence in this area includes, elicits a "I want and can do it"? Then click on the button. Maybe you find what you have always been looking - right here!
