Lecco, Lake of Como, Italy

Hi, my name is Piera, I really love sewing, embroidering, tatting and doing everything that's creative. I've sew since I was sixteen using mainly Burda patterns. Some years ago I decided to begin to study to learn to draw my own patterns and sew perfect fit dresses, which is what I'm able to do now. I'm on craftsy because I really love to learn new stuff and techniques and to share my own projects :)
