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.
My relationship with needlepoint, like any relationship, has experienced different phases. I have felt the first sparks of infatuation with needlepoint, have been resentful of needlepoint’s hold on my life, and most recently rediscovered my passion for needlepoint.
Summer always began with a road trip from Florida to Vermont. My parents would stuff the car like Mary Poppins purse, and we would stop at traditional historical sites like Williamsburg and less traditional historical sites like our favorite diner along 93 north.
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.
