Embroidery is a valuable and acknowledged form of art, just like painting or architecture. For example, canvases created by Alighiero Boetti are sold at auctions for millions of dollars. For many of us, our own work or the work of our loved ones, friends, children, or parents, are particularly important. People from our compilation published the photos of their little masterpieces that they are proud of, admire, and are simply happy to have.
