About the author
Sewing is in Nichole Vogelsinger's blood, but it didn't always translate to her fingertips. She spent summers browsing the fabric shop where her grandmother worked, and her mother taught quilting classes, but her initial efforts at sewing were meager at best. The stitching bug finally bit when she received a hand-me-down sewing machine after her first son was born. Nichole began creating embroidery hoop designs in 2012 and has shared her images on Instagram (@wildboho) where her colorful, accessible style has inspired thousands. She is the author of Boho Embroidery: Modern Projects from Traditional Stitches, published by Lucky Spool Media. Nichole describes her work and style as a free-spirited blend of chaos and control and invites stitchers to be unafraid of bending the rules. Follow along with Nichole at wildboho.com.
