Recommended: Beginner stitchers

This needlecase is an adaptation of a 18th. century American needlecase. Originally these and pocket books were worked with a crewel wool yarn in all manner of florentine patterns, flame stitch being one of them. This style of canvas embroidery was very popular in Europe during the late 16th and 17th centuries and some examples date back to the 13th century. It is a quick and economical way of covering large areas of fabric and it was used for upholstery for chairs as well as wallhangings and bed curtains. The needlecase is worked with silk floss and is lined with silk. Wool felt is used for the needles and a hand dyed silk ribbon is used for closing.

Thread Count: 35 count (14 th/cm)linen
This is a complete kit including silk threads, silk lining fabric, wool felt, silk ribbon and linen.
