Krista West from Avlea Folk Embroidery
Krista West delights in bringing ancient beauty to the modern world with embroidery designs inspired by traditional Mediterranean folk textiles.
Introduced to traditional folk embroidery on one of her trips to Greece, she fell in love with the vibrant colors and historic motifs, and began stitching textiles for her own home.
As friends and family admired her designs, she realized there was still much interest in this historic craft and so she opened Avlea Folk Embroidery to share the beauty of folk embroidery with others.
She happily spends her days in the workshop of her 1923 home in Salem, Oregon, designing patterns and making kits for customers and shops around the world.
