Teacher Biography

Jill Rigoli lives in La Jolla, California but spent 20 years travelling around the world with her Air Force officer husband. She learned needlepoint in Berlin, Germany, when they were stationed there. When they returned home she could not find what she wanted, so she bought some canvas and Danji Designs was born. She started designing military emblems, then the business grew into what it is today. She owned two stores at different times—one in Alexandria, Virginia and one in San Diego.

Jill has been teaching needlepoint around the country for many years. A few years ago she became interested in what you could do with beads on canvas, and that has become a trademark for her, and everything she stitches will have beads on it.
