Cheryl Schaeffer and Annie Lee Designs

Welcome to our world!

Welcome to the world of my imagination. It is filled with neighborhoods of Victorian Houses, whimsical gardens, and enchanted creatures. Tea time is whenever and wherever you choose. Christmas is year round, jolly ghosts and wicked witches keep an eye out and Santa likes to play dress up. All of my designs are either painted canvas or counted thread on canvas, though the latter may be stitched on even weave fabric. Many have been featured in Stitch World Magazine.

I hope you have as much fun stitching them as I did creating them.

All About Us

Cheryl and Annie have been associates since 1997. They have been in the bussiness since the early 1970's. While they both maintain their own custom designing business, back in 2007 they decieded to put their talents together. Its been a perfect blend for them, from their fun and whimsical designs to their attitude towards their work. Their motto has been "As long as we 're having fun we will just keep doing it". So far it has been a blast.

Art has always been an important part of my life. I was always the child that was drawing for friends and family. As a child and into my early adult years my family lived in many different areas of the United States. As my father was in the Marine Corps. When selecting a major in collage it was only natural that I selected Art. I graduated with a degree in Fiber arts from Cal State Fullerton and a degree in Commercial Art. Needlepoint found me, my Mother wanted to learn to do needlepoint, so she signed us up for a class at the local Junior college. I was newly married and my husband was still in college and working evenings. This gave me time to fall in love with the new art form for me. Working with other designers gave me a chance to learn the business. I have been designing for over 25 years working with wonderful companies such as Rainbow Gallery, Fleur de Paris, Needle Necessities, Julia's Needlework's, and Susan Portra.

What Others Are Saying...

These ladies names may ring a bell, Cheryl Schaeffer and Annie Lee. These talented designers had some great designs displayed. Everything from presentation to making contacts was done well for these women. Their cute business cards with a hawaiin shirt key chain enhanced their playful style.
