Are you feeling like you have no free time?
Do you feel you are always running around and don’t have time to disconnect and just be?
Maybe you feel you don’t have any free time between work and taking care of the kids.
Maybe you think that starting a new activity, while you’re so busy, would be crazy.
Maybe you think you have no time to disconnect, let alone learn something new.
Maybe you feel that you only deserve to unplug when you are done with your to do list.
But let’s face it. That never happens.
When you create time to make things with your hands, you feel calmer, happier, more creative and feel a sense of achievement.
The air Embroidery Club is a membership community with monthly templates that will help you connect with your passion for making and make it fit in real life. When you join the Club, you become part of a supportive community of busy people, who share a common passion for making things with their hands.

Does this sound like your everyday life:
you feel you don’t have time for anything?
you think you’ll only have time to yourself when you retire and kids leave home?
you don’t have time to read a book, let alone learn something new?
It doesn’t have to be like that. Imagine this:
you find some downtime for yourself amid the chaos of everyday life. (Is that email really that urgent?)
you get into a meditative state when you focus on what your hands are doing. (Multitasking is a myth!)
you find pockets of time where you didn’t expect. (Waiting for the dentist’s appointment becomes time you look forward to!)
you connect with people who share the passion of embroidery with you
you lead a more satisfying life when you learn a new craft.
you get a sense of achievement every time you complete a project.
You will realize your embroidery is like a coloring book for adults, where instead of crayons you use needle and thread. An embroidery project is the perfect companion while waiting for your appointment, it’s inexpensive and very, very fun. You will learn how to create the art you want to have on your walls, with your own hands.
My name is Ana Isabel Ramos and I love that my initials spell “air”. I feel this is no coincidence, because one of the first lessons I learnt while studying graphic design was that the white on a page was as important as what was printed.
No wonder this has influenced my sketchbooks and illustrations of my life in three different continents, and today it feeds my embroideries too. A few years ago I challenged my notion that embroidery was difficult and found in it a fantastic way to translate into fabric my passion for line drawing. Since that day, I have learned from the Club’s members and shared with them my passion for different embroidery traditions around the world.
I created the air Embroidery Club because I love the way I feel when I’m embroidering, and I want to share that with everyone. I enjoy myself when I take that time to be focused on one thing only. While I watch my hands move, my mind wanders away. And it is at the moment I’m most relaxed I sometimes find solutions to other problems in my life.
