Let's get creative ... ideas and passion come together ... its time to make your mark!

All you need is a background – canvas, paper or fabric (a surface on which to make your mark). The medium – paint, pencils or needles and thread.

Art and craft fuse together with understanding design ideas; composition, colour and balance. ‘Themes’ are easy…just choose what takes your fancy.

ART EMBROIDERY – Les Designs for Living provides ideas for the good life in your home environment: pictures, upholstery, wall hangings/quilts, fashion and more. Our designs (drawings) can be A4 or as large as A0. Paint/thread/appliqué for bespoke garments.
