Emily Baier is an artist who has worked in many mediums, but is especially drawn to embroidery and fiber arts. After earning her BFA in photography and printmaking from Savannah College of Art and Design in 2005, Emily moved back to the Pacific Northwest to pursue her artwork. From 2009 to 2015 she owned and ran Tako Fibers, a small embroidery studio designing and producing crewel embroidery kits for all skill levels. When she is not embroidering, she might be knitting, pickling, or sewing. She lives in Portland, Oregon with her husband, twin daughters, and elderly dog.
