Few designers are as loving and passionate about their designs as Laura Lattuada of Passione Ricamo. A very active designer, she has created some of the most elegant and detailed fairies, angels, mermaids, and romantically dressed women. Laura is very much hands on with her designs. These are her dreams, her wishes. She believes in angels, fairies, and all things that you can't really see but only feel like the sun on your skin or the scent of almost-born spring.
It took only an email from James to get this design rolling, just as it took only an email from a parent about the recent Sandy Hook school shooting to move Laura do create a special design to help in any way she can. Her website is a pure delight, full of tempting new designs. She also has a blog in both Italian and English where she lets you know what is happening and posts new free designs.
Today, Laura and her family live Northern Italy and have their atelier in a 1300 year old (!) Italian house with brick ceilings and terracotta tiles on the floor. Stitchers are welcome to sit and relax among all of her charts and designs and have an Italian coffee with her.
