Drum-roll Please!!!! Seven years ago this gorgeous Georgian inspired needlework set hit Facebook and set hearts a flutter. What was going to be a cyber class was pushed aside once the mother of pearl accessories became discontinued. With enough of the mother of pearl accessories already purchased to make a limited edition kit, the box to house the accessories and your work in progress was finally completed during Lockdown 2020!
The silk covered box measures approximately 20cm square and 10cm high – inside there is a tray that sits above a cavity large enough to hold a ‘work in progress’ in a 6″ hoop. The tray holds four silk slippers: one is a scissor scabbard that also holds a mother of pearl ruler – the second is a pincushion that also holds threads, the third is a needle case and the fourth is a miniature slipper to hold your thimble. There is also a scissor fob to hang on your scissors – and all contain a monogram.
The kit contains Silk Dupion, calico, flannel, pellon, English gilt meta threads, Cascade house silk, Au Ver a Soie silk, Gutermann polyester thread, Swarovski pearl, pearl beads, assorted specialty threads and findings, needles, template plastic and card for construction of the box. It also contains a full colour step by step book of instructions and the tools to go in the slippers: scissors with gold plated handles, a mother of pearl ruler, mother of pearl thread rings and pearl headed pins.
Kits are available now! This is a limited edition – there are only 50 kits being produced. While I am offering with a choice of four colourways – dark red, dusky pink, rose violet purple (not shown in photos), emerald green and royal purple, if you wanted a particular shade that is not listed, please ask and if we can, we will accommodate.
