Our combined talent allows us to offer a wide range of both paper and fabric items incorporating various techniques such as quilting, sewing, embroidery, beadwork, and ribbonry.

Avant-Carde is the creative work of Joan, Jan and Julie - three family members, three best friends, three creative enthusiasts. We specialize in exquisite, vintage-inspired cards and mixed media items suitable for decorating, gift-giving or celebrations.

We have been creating for as long as we can remember and our passion for 'handmade' passed down to us through generations of creative women. We have embraced the gift of creativity and the joy that it brings to ourselves and others.

Our combined talent allows us to offer a wide range of both paper and fabric items incorporating various techniques such as quilting, sewing, embroidery, beadwork, and ribbonry. Our diversity, attention to detail, quality of workmanship, experience and the desire to push our creativity are what set us apart. Since we each have a unique style, no two pieces are ever the same.

Inspiration for us comes in many forms. We are inspired by the colors, textures and patterns that we find in fabric, paper, ribbons or embellishments and love to incorporate these elements (generously!) into our mixed media designs. We are constantly inspired by ideas that come from online sources, magazines, flea markets, other artists and, most importantly, each other !!

We hope that our items provide you with the same joy that we receive from making them .. we welcome all inquiries and feedback
