She Taught Herself Nålbinding and Made a Business From The Ancient Art!

“It was very hard to learn because YouTube wasn’t a big thing at the time, so I had to learn off of written instructions. A lot of it, I Googled and was able to find it online.”

Cristina Yonce is a self-taught nålbinder who has practiced the rare art form for the past 15 years or so, using it to create “traditional pieces” — socks, mittens, hats and coin purses. Recently she was profiled by The Detroit News and the spotlight caught my eye – definitely worth a read.

Here are a few of the pieces she’s made, I love how tight the stitches are!
