I have discovered your treasures last year ...and immediately fell in love with your extraordinary colors. I have just finished a cross-stitch piece and I have loved every single stitch of it! I'm not an inspired textile artist but your products have opened doors that I had never expected to open.

I've been browsing through the files... and what I've seen already exceeds my expectations by far. I probably never imagined it to be so extensive, structured, precise and perfectionist. I take my hat off to your work (my greatest respect)...
