Erika Maizi : A personal journey through sacred embroidery
Today on Stitchery Stories we have a very unique story, where embroidery has been the catalyst for a personal journey of discovery, of re-connecting with family and deep spiritual meanings.
We are usually chatting about embroidery as an art form. For Erika Maizi however, the interest in embroidery has grown from meditation, spiritualism, and the symbolism within the sacred embroidery and connections with her Kazak and Siberian families.
