There are 9 sets available of white treasure box #11, all with the same kinds of thread and little items inside. Only the quilt pieces shape (all from the same quilt) and colour of the linen on a little spool may vary.
In the box you will find:
Fine linen embroidery thread, around 160 meter. One of the skeins is a 1960's Linblomman thread 25/4, divisible into four strands. Two are lace weight linen thread from Nordiska.
A braid of 1960's very fine and smooth linen thread, approximately 70 strands of just under one meter each. To use this thread just pull a strand from the top of the braid.
One skein of antique Swedish weavers linen thread, slubby, fine, unbleached.
One skein of vintage silk embroidery thread,
pre-cut in lengths near 90 cm.
One small hank of natural fibre thread, likely to be linen.
Unknown age, interesting texture.
A paper spool of Swedish vintage linen
A piece of Swedish antique bedding cotton with a chenille needle and an antique packing needle.
A metal thimble
Nordiska's soft cotton embroidery yarn
A n antique paper card with Swiss linen
Japanese gima thread wound around the scissors.
The vintage scissors are used as a thread winder as they are a little stiff.
The lower hidden layer of the box hold pieces of old linen, a quilt block and vintage and contemporary cotton threads.
In each parcel is also three hand painted 1940's glass beads, a few Golden Triangle lotus seeds (you can thread through them with a needle), and crocheted cotton beads from Delhi, and a linen damask sample cloth from a Swedish weaving factory, Dalsjöfors Fabriker. Printed on the linen are codes and information about the design, with a text which tells "Archive sample. May not be sold".
These are all different, each one unique and made between 1950 and 1967.
The box itself is as pictured, white Linblomman (The Flax Flower)
"The best linen yarn for embroidery" from the 1960's.
The last photo is of a 1960's pattern from Nordiska, printed on contemporary linen and included for free as long as stock lasts. All the white treasure boxes will come with one of these prints.
(One per person/only 100 have been printed).
