Giulia Punti Antichi started in 1998 just for fun. We are two designers, Giulia and Sofia, mother and daughter, sharing the same passion for designing and stitching with hand dyed fabrics and threads. Taking inspiration from old stitching techniques and new needlework art, we endeavor to give a distinctive look to our projects, using unique textiles and needlework accessories.
Giulia's Designs includes traditional designs and old fashioned pieces, with motifs from Italy, Europe and Unites States, dedicated to stitchers of all ages and different levels of expertise.
Teen Stitch by Sofia includes original designs mainly dedicated to younger stitchers but also to more experienced needleworkers.
We have published on prestigious magazines like Sampler and Antique Needlework Quarterly, The Gift of Stitching, Un Natale da Ricamare, as well as on International websites. We also belong to the Designing Ladies group, run by Judy Odell, and we enjoy the collaboration with this amazing professional finisher.
We live in Italy and our town, Massa, is in Tuscany, a few miles from Pisa, on the seacoast, with a wonderful view of mountains full of white marble and surrounded by oranges, olives and palm trees. Our Country, our travels and our beloved ones are the inspiration of our designs.
