AAN ~ Alessandra Adelaide Needleworks
Alessandra Adelaide Beretta Cesura , born in Milan , Italy ; February, 14 1960

I made the firsts cross stitches at 4 years old thanks to my loved mother , and thanks to her I learned to love all embroideries and hand made
The first web site in which I proposed free my patterns was " Tanamammorsa "
In 1995 I started to bring some of my patterns on sale in 2005 and "Alessandra Adelaide Needleworks" ( AAN ) born .

The first person to believe in "Alessandra Adelaide Needleworks" (AAN) was Tracy Horner (Ink Circles) and she began to distribute my drawings in the US and Canada, giving me the courage to continue my passion, transforming it into work.

Now I'm able to carry on AAN thanks to the help of many persons ; I do not want to forget anyone in my thanks, but I have to give my special thanks to Paolo, beloved husband and Roxanne, precious friend .
Thanks to every stitcher who chooses my patterns , thanks to every store that offers my patterns
