Lycette reinvigorates needlepoint with a modern, playful elegance. Inspired by lush winters in Palm Beach, the hydrangeas and hammocks of New England summers, and the effortless elegance of equestrian style, Lycette believes Eloise is the ultimate girl crush and a little cheekiness is always appreciated. Most importantly, one should be luxurious in the pursuit of traditional pastimes, elegant interiors, and effortless style. Through our colorful, cheeky needlepoint designs, Lycette hopes to enchant fellow aesthetes and inspire creativity.
I am thrilled to feature Lycette’s latest “Woman on Point,” Rachel Donley! I first met Rachel at the Destination Dallas tradeshow in the fall of 2016, and was immediately charmed. She is preppy, funny, and extremely talented at designing needlepoint! Of course I picked up one of her canvases- her Nantucket basket lightship purse.
The most frequent question I am asked is, “Why Lycette? Your name is Jessica…”
I am THRILLED to host Madcap Cottage on the Lycette Blog. A few months back a message popped into my inbox, an invitation to talk needlepoint with John Loecke and Jason Oliver Nixon, the gents behind the interior design megahouse Madcap Cottage. My first reaction was, “NO, who would be mean enough to play this joke?”
