Kristen Valencia
Kristen is a self-taught embroiderer with over 10 years of stitching experience. Her passion for bright and colorful stitches comes from the hand-embroidered Mexican blouses she encountered on a trip to Mexico City many years ago. She returned to her home in Southern Arizona and took up embroidery, learning stitching techniques from books found at flea markets and vintage stores. Today, Kristen often combines the sewing skills she learned from her grandmother and stitching work, creating new and different places to infuse embroidery into every area of her world.
