About teacher Natalia Frank
Natalia Frank is a self-taught stitcher and an award-winning needlework miniaturist. Her stitching journey started in her late 20’s with cross-stitch, and since then she has been discovering and studying other types of needlework. Attention to details that was borrowed from working in law enforcement institutions have brought her interest into Petit Point; she tried it and has been hooked ever since. What sparks her interest in Petit Point on silk gauze is that it is a challenge to depict as many details as possible in 1 square inch. Today she is lucky to be able to share her passion of Petit Point and the knowledge of working with silk gauze she gained through trials and errors with wonderful people, teaching small groups and individual classes at shows, seminars and in her little studio shop.
