For 40 years, Leigh Designs has taken great pride in designing
"exquisite hand painted needlepoint". We are widely known for
producing some of the most unique and sophisticated designs available
in our industry. We have also become highly recognized for our
custom work, and respected for our customer service and ability
to ship quickly.
However, it is now time for Leigh Designs to step forward into
the future under new ownership. Therefore, we are extremely pleased
to announce that Leigh Designs, along with its wholly-owned Ashland
Sky brand of needlework totes and bags, will become part of Fleur
de Paris Corporation on September 1st, 2019. This move will bring
us into the diverse and extensive Fleur de Paris family of needlepoint
designers, Zweigart canvas, Rainbow Gallery threads, and a wide
variety of needlework accessories.
Fleur de Paris will take over ownership and all day-to day operations
on September 1st. All pending orders and commitments prior to
that will still be fulfilled by Leigh, Robert and Alex. Everything
after the 1st will go through Fleur de Paris' offices in Burbank,
CA. You can reach them by phone at 844-325-7772, or by email at
Leigh Designs will also, once again, be in Room 522 at the Destination
Dallas market in mid-September. As with the Spring show in Orlando,
the irrepressible Missy Gray will be managing the room and taking
orders. She will also be assisted by our long-time friend and
stitcher extraordinaire, Carolyn Taggart. Please be sure to stop
by and say 'Hi'.
It's been a wild ride these past 40 years. But,
I'm not going anywhere -- I hope to continue designing for Fleur
de Paris well into the future. Onward & upward!!!
