Miss Katiuska is the brainchild of first-time mum and crafter Amaia, who lives in Pamplona in Spain. Inspired by her mother’s love of sewing, Amaia is self-taught in crochet and embroidery. In 2012, she started to embroider her own designs and drawings, almost intuitively, including her first creation – a cloud embroidery hoop.
Driven by her passion for crafting, Amaia wanted to improve her technique, so she received training from well-known embroiderers such as Guillermina Baiguera and Laura Ameba. Miss Katiuska was born in September 2014, selling all manner of beautiful items including cushions, and teether toys and, but it is her iconic embroidery hoops for which Amaia is best known. Made using only the highest quality materials, the cotton is purchased locally in a bid to support local businesses as much as possible.
Miss Katiuska’s bestsellers include embroidery hoops, Unicorn, Alpaca and Girl with a Bun. Featuring threads in a myriad of luscious colours, these unique and graceful designs would be the perfect addition to a nursery or children’s bedroom. Her future plan is to grow the business by selling her products in shops across Europe, as well as running workshops for keen crafters. Don’t worry though if you can’t find her products yet in your town – the products are also available for worldwide delivery!
