A box full of useful new and interesting old materials to help with your mending, repair, patch and stitch, daydreams and play,
all in beautiful blues.
The fabric pieces are from unused mid century workwear cotton (Swedish), a well loved antique Dutch quilt, new linen, tweed and a larger piece of vintage cotton featuring flora & fauna. A small fragment of feedsack.
Together the fabric pieces measure circa 50 x 70 cm.
This is a series of ten boxes and all vary slightly.
In this box you will also find:
A 55+ meter variegated linen skein
Seven contemporary linen skeins, 14 meter each.
Three 1960's linen lace thread skeins, a very beautiful, strong and smooth fine linen, one fine with texture. 30 meter per skein.
Two spools of silk: one machine silk from the late 1800’s, and one brighter vintage Gutermann.
(The Gutermann silk shades vary slightly in each box)
Three chenille needles on a 60's paper cut
A copper monogram stencil, circa 1905. The monogram initials vary in each box.
A post card and a thread card with linen
all packed in a sturdy paper box which comes gift wrapped.
