About This Class

CONTEMPORRY HAND EMBROIDERY

My personal definition of contemporary hand embroidery is: “an amazing way of expressing your creativity by hand sewing awesome designs into fabric or other materials.”

Forget about what your grandma used to make. Embroidery can be something modern and really cool.

Cristina Alcantara

Embroiderer behind Hoops & Expectations

Hello I'm Cristina! I'm the embroiderer behind Hoops & Expectations, a geek and chic Star Wars fan addicted to pistachio ice cream and crazy about embroidery.

MY STORY

I was born and raised in Barcelona, a city that I love, but to which I said goodbye some years ago when I decided to live abroad and look for new experiences.
I've lived in a variety of countries such as Norway, Chile, India or the United States, where I came for love, but that's another story ;)
