I originally saw Shal’s work on Instagram on @mrxstitch’s account. I went to her account and her work absolutely blew me away, she’s talented in so many mediums! I decided I better invest in one of her pieces right away. Shal is so professional and easy to work with and my Edith Head piece is beautiful. It’s in my workshop above my sewing machine so I can look at it everyday.
