Alexa Lett: The Art of Being Renewed

My passion for ‘all things stitchy’ became the art form of choice for many reasons. I love the creative process, the beauty of imperfection and the ability to determine handmade in a nano second. Years of supporting an athletic daughter led to hours of sitting on a bleacher. This time became the foundation of learning the art of stitching. The need to be creative had to become mobile for me, so this medium was perfect. Plus, a giddy zeal for vintage fabrics and notions collected over the years provided enough supply to last a lifetime of ballgames.

Now, the nest is empty and my little bird is off in college. A rented art studio in a wonderful creative community is my home away from home. I am back to ALL things creative. Mixed media, jewelry, art and stitchery seem to be the medium of choice. The creative world for me is blossoming in a new way….I love it. My work has been featured on HGTV, TLC televisions shows, magazines, ‘how-to’ styled books; and I have a book of recipes (that you cannot eat!) entitled “Homemade.”
