Gail Bird became interested in Russian punchneedle embroidery several years ago. Since then she has become the nation’s foremost promoter of the craft, devoting all her efforts to developing punchneedle embroidery as an art form. She has lectured throughout the United States and demonstrated the craft in major department stores and on television. A serious historian of the form, Mrs. Bird has traveled to Russia, Poland, and Hungary to study embroidery techniques, and possesses the world’s largest collection of finished contemporary Russian punchneedle embroidery.
