Profile - Cindy ValentineCindy Valentine became interested in hand needlework as a child. Her grandmother started her with stamped cross stitch and embroidery projects, and taught her to crochet. After graduating from high school, she began experimenting with crewel embroidery as an art form, and as often happens, these interests were laid aside while raising her five children. She became interested in Hardanger embroidery in 1982 when planning her youngest child’s baptismal gown.
In 1995, she relocated with my husband to the Middle East. There she rekindled her interest in embroideries and textile arts. In 1999, she returned to the Middle East and Cindy Valentine Designs began. She has also lived in England and has traveled through Europe and China, where she gets inspiration for many of her designs.
