She acquired some knowledge and skill at home. She inherited her love of needlework from her mother, who taught her to cross-stitch pillows and sheets. In Australia she greatly developed her skills and became one of the leading handicraft makers.

“In Australia I became interested in all possible types of needlework. I can say that I tried everything new that I saw and that, in general, I managed new techniques quite well.”
