Meet Maggie Mielczarek, an artist, mom and business owner. She started her fabric/pillow/accessory business, Leland Gal, three years when all the pieces suddenly fell into place. She has a little shop in Leland, Michigan, open seasonally, where she sells her colorful designs. All of her fabrics are her own painted designs turned into patterns. Maggie uses her soundings in Michigan to inspire her patterns: Birch trees, canoes, sail boats and cherries. Her patterns are so fun and we can’t wait to see our lighting paired with Leland Gal. Step into her colorful world to see why we are inspired by Maggie and Leland Gal!
