Peacock & Fig Adorned Life Collection Sneak Peek
Famous for elegant designs, Peacock & Fig's highly-anticipated Adorned Life Collection of vintage-inspired cross stitch patterns is expected to be a huge hit.
Peacock & Fig inspires creativity by not only providing the patterns to stitch from, but also full-colour instructions and video tutorials. Even novices can complete these designs, and a motivating aim of Peacock & Fig is to encourage being creative. The designer and artist behind Peacock & Fig, Dana Batho, knows all too well how important creativity can be. A former Royal Canadian Air Force Intelligence Officer and cyber-threat analyst, Dana was badly hurt during her service on training. She was medically discharged in August 2015 due to her disability, and since then has been unable to work "normally." She states, "I'd had to give up my entire artistic life for two years because of the injury. I'd exhibited my art around the world and had always created, and I was forced to give that up because of mobility issues and constant pain. It was only when I applied my creativity to my own life that I slowly learned how to adapt how to do things and how to create art again. Now I design digitally, and I'm so passionate about cross stitch as it's the easiest stitching craft to learn, so it's accessible to everyone. It's truly inspiring seeing how something as simple as making an X with thread really can translate to better problem solving and a happier life. And of course, in the process you also end up with a beautiful handcrafted item that you and your family can cherish for generations."
