Domestika Challenge: Kseniia Guseva Embroiders a Building in 30 Minutes

See if embroidery artist Kseniia Guseva can embroider a building in the centre of Madrid in just 30 minutes

Embroidery is a slow and meticulous process… but not today. For the latest installment of our Domestika Challenge series, we’ve put international embroidery artist Kseniia Guseva’s (@faimyxstitch) skills to the test with a 30 minute embroidery challenge in Madrid's iconic Plaza Mayor.

Kseniia Guseva (@faimyxstitch) has been embroidering every day since 2016, creating stitchwork cityscapes—an interest shaped by the architecture of her hometown of Saint Petersburg. Her talent and commitment as an embroidery artist has garnered her an Instagram following in the hundreds of thousands but she’s never faced a challenge like this before: stitching a building in just half an hour.

Want to see how she did? Check out the video below:
