The Colorful Exuberance of Laura Lees


Gear Threads Is The Mr X Stitch Machine Embroidery Column - Presented By Urban Threads!

For Scottish designer Laura Lees, more is definitely more. Lees creates in a wide range of modes, from fashion to furniture to custom pieces and collaboration — but the one thing her work has in common is a joyful abundance of embroidery. Colorful freehand machine embroidery covers her creations, sometimes mingling with hand embroidery to create rich arrays of texture and color.
