Ernie A. Smith started his business Penn & Fletcher in 1986 and has specialized in custom embroidery. Dedicated in creating unique embroideries and providing employment for needlework artisans in New York City. The company is renowned among prominent interior designers, architects as well as house museum. Other commissions can be seen in Broadway shows, operas, ballets, and film.
Embroidery is the art of embellishing soft surfaces with sewn ideas. Ernie Smith's company has created 18th Century embroidery with ultra-modern machines, or modern embroideries with 16th Century hand embroidery techniques. Capable on any scale, from a single pillow to a grand drape for a national opera house.
We specialize in embroideries for interiors, theatre, monograms and logos, decorative pillows, laces and trims using classic and contemporary methods and techniques.
Penn & Fletcher takes pride in creating refined embroidery on jobs too large in scale for other embroidery firms to consider. Some of our large-scale work includes the grand drape for the Seattle Opera House, a star backdrop for Bally's of Las Vegas, a circular bar surround for Harrah's also in Las Vegas. We love figuring out how to do the impossible.
