Erica was born in the UK and came to the United States in 1954 to teach. Since that time she has been living in New York, and has left an indelible mark in the world of embroidery.
She was trained at the Royal School of Needlework, and her designs for needlework, crewel and cross stitch were everywhere during the 60’s and 70’s. During her career Erica wrote dozens of books and pattern leaflets, hosted her embroidery series on WGBH Boston, and with her husband Vladimir Kagan ran Erica Wilson Needle Works in New York’s upper east side and 4 other locations.
Our hearts go out to Mr. Kagan, their children and grandchildren.
