We want to give people an antidote to modern life.
The ability to not only find their inner calm and creativity, but to make something truly unique with their own hands in the process, which they can treasure for a lifetime.
We want to live in a world where everyone takes their pleasure seriously.
Why? Because the time we give to taking care of ourselves is the best investment we can make – it helps us do everything else better in life.
Following our pleasures isn’t just fun, it’s essential for self-care. In a busy, chaotic, 24-7 world, they’re the one thing that can help us find our way back to ourselves.
Unwind Studio founder, Cristina Cerqueira was ahead of the curve in the ‘great reset’. She’d suffered burnout from a career in data engineering, and her ah-ha moment came on maternity leave when she started needlepointing again. As a child, she’d spent most of her vacations stitching, but fell out of love with it by college because of the outdated designs. Now as a new mom, she picked up an unfinished canvas and it sparked an idea... to create a business combining two of her biggest passions: art & illustration and needlepoint. Unwind Studio was launched early 2020.
Our team has been growing, and we are now six super cool and inspiring women of different ages and backgrounds, working at our little studio every day to keep innovating and spreading the love for needlepoint!
