About Kiriki Press
"I wanted to make an embroidered doll for my niece so I decided to learn how to stitch," Kiriki Press creator Michelle Galletta says. "Since I couldn't find a modern pattern anywhere, I made my own and fell in love with both embroidery and pattern design in the process. I studied printmaking at university, so once I realized that I could screen print my patterns for others to make, Kiriki Press was born."
