Hi my name is Victoria and I am a fiber artist focused on 3D floral designs and patterns. My fascination with needle lace in 2015 bloomed into a skilled craft I started to pursue full-time at the end of 2017.

I like to think of needle lace as the forgotten ancestor of knitting and crochet. Handmade lace is formed by creating a sequence of tiny knots using fine thread and tapestry needles. The result of using very fine thread gives the lace flowers a more delicate look.

My days are usually spent exploring new ideas to create original flower patterns. I spend lots of time going through thousands of experiments with different threads, wires, beads, and needles to understand what is possible in needle lace designs.

In the last few months I discovered a community of English speakers that wish to learn the art but had trouble finding resources. Since then, I started to write a book on learning needle lace, invested in video equipment to create video lessons, launched my own website - Flowers in Threads, and partnered with a wonderful local/online craft store- Tatting Corner in Indiana, to teach at their workshop events. I currently meet locally with students in downtown Chicago, and offer online courses for those who are not in the Midwest.

Lacework by hand is a labor of love and skill. It requires good dexterity and patience to work with fine threads and needles. It is a great craft to try and can be meditative.
