DESIGNER SERVICES - CREATIVE INSTRUCTION

Do You See What I See?

HAND-EMBROIDERED, NEEDLE-PAINTED WALL HANGINGS

Holiday Patchwork Mix

I offer decorating services for both community centers and private homes. From new ideas and custom designed decor to arranging cherished keepsakes. Just a little help, every room or a complete hall, I guarantee you will love the result. 

Lanterns also make wonderful decor items. Shown right is a custom floor lantern with burlap poinsettia, pine sprays and ribbon. Custom made and creative lessons both available.

What is needle-painting?


​Needle-painting is the art of using a variety of hand-embroidery stitches to creatively embellish and quilt a pre-printed or pieced fabric block. The block is then backed with coordinating fabric and finished with decorative binding. Fabric tabs are added for hanging.


If you love  to sew, quilt or do embroidery, or if this sounds like something you would like to learn, I can teach you. $40 / 4 lesson sessions. (Zoom available.)

If you just want to create something easy and fun yourself for the Holidays, consider  our Zoom instruction sessions to make these cute wine bottle snowmen or Santas.  Ready made also available for $25 (cork bottle lights included). 

These three J. Lacy Coughlan's hand-embroidered quilts were recently on two month display at Royal Highlands, Florida.

Wreathes are custom made to client specifications. $150 - $250

Instruction $40 / 4 lesson sessions (Zoom available)

A very limited number of finished quilts are available for sale.

The Keeper of the Wishing Stars

"I have gifted each of my children and grandchildren with one of these keepsake quilts.J. Lacy Coughlan

“I am passionate about my artistic endeavors. I love the creation process; taking a selection of materials, cutting and sewing, gluing, painting, and merging them into something uniquely beautiful and pleasing. I enjoy finding new creative ideas for myself or teaching them to others. And, I absolutely love Holiday decorating."

And lets not forget the wreaths. I specialize in Farmhouse (grapevine) wreathes for all occasions. 


Shown right are a grapevine wreath decorated with crystal coated primroses and traditional circlet with burlap poinsettia, ornaments and berries.  Below are two grapevine wreaths, one with fall sunflowers, the other red poinsettia, apples and holly.

If you love peacocks, this exquisite table top mini tree is a delight to see. It is 30" high and lavished with stylized glass ornaments, glitter snowflakes, dried baby's breath and of course, peacocks.


This tree is just one example of the many themed trees I can custom create.... butterflies... woodland... favorite ornaments... the decor possibilities are endless. These trees are perfect for small areas of the home, table decor or as gifts. Trees will vary in height depending upon the availability of materials. 


I also offer instruction to custom create your very own tree.
