Hello, my fellow creative textile artists!
My name is Elmira Cancelada.
I’m a Software QA Engineer from Maine, USA.
I love the hand-made objects that have beauty, color and quality.
I also love making things myself . With varied success in areas of beauty, color and quality, but plenty of room for improvement in each area.
Currently I do stranded color work knitting. I have temerity to call myself a textile artist. An amateur textile artist.
This blog is solely for sharing my ideas and mistakes with other textile artists of all levels and directions. The mistakes are mostly mine, but the majority of good ideas start with others’ work.
In summary, the blog is for those who outgrew the selection of craft books in bookstores and started looking for inspiration elsewhere.
This blog is about ideas. By extension, I avoid selling anything or endorsing any products for a fee. Also, I do not write the step-by-step instructions for most of the projects featured here. After all, it is a blog about inspirations and design ideas.
I do make occasional commissioned projects, but they are very, very occasional.
Please, be patient 👋
I will try to reply ASAP, but it might take a few days.
