Lynne Nicoletti and her "fusion" embroidery
Canada has always been the symbol of cultures meeting and matching together and, from a linguistic point of view, it definitely represents one of the most charming countries in the world, for its intrinsic French-English bilinguism. Such a particular land, where different cultures and society blend, couldn’t but be the homeland of an original designer, with a style that cannot be labeled in any way, like Lynne Nicoletti
. Her projects join all the elegance of clean and precise crosses, typical of the French stitching style, with the traditional colors of America, for a unique result that’s evident in patterns such as Down the Garden Path
Lynne approached the world of craft thanks to the needlework classes she has been attending since she was a child, following the advise of her mom and grandma.
She has never thought of these classes as a “duty”, however, but as absolutely relaxing hours, after the time spent to school and with her homework. So, starting from her personal revision of already-existing patterns, Lynne has gradually taken heart, until she founded her own brand.
Among the most particular and beloved projects of hers, we can find this fortune teller
, a mixture of stitching and fabric origami, drawing its inspiration from the card games of our children. Not so easy to realize, but certainly amazing to look at! Actually, Lynne is always trying to make stitching her projects fun, never reducing them to a mere picture to hang in our living room.
With the same spirit, she has also created works such as Read Me a Rhyme Teddy Bear
matching patchwork and cross stitch.
If we had to find a single definition for a style actually matching several craft techniques and different tastes, we could certainly say that the style of Lynne Nicoletti
is a fusion
brand that, just like in the modern cooking called the same way, mixes and spices up many different flavors!
