Samples & Kits

Originally uploaded by notionnanny
These are some of the samples used by Dianne Ayres and her employees when making their textile works. Featuring stylized motifs such as dragonflies, ginkgo leaves, roses, tulips, and pinecones, each design is hand stenciled and hand embroidered on Belgian linen. In keeping with the Arts and Crafts Movement ideal that everyone should have access to beautiful things for the home, Dianne has created a series of kits so that anyone who has facility with a needle and thread can re-create her historical recreations.
