For generations, hand embroidery captured precious memories. The quiet time and the natural rhythm of hand stitching bring the sense of accomplishment, calm and joy. Embark on your creative journey and make one-of-a-kind artwork or meaningful gifts for family and friends.
The butterfly pincushion reproduced in this project was made in France at the turn of the 20th century. At that time, metal pailettes came in a variety of shapes and sizes, no longer manufactured today.
The kit contains rare antique pailettes and threads from the late 1890s and early 1900s. They are completely authentic, but please expect slight variations in color, given their respectable age. Select your choice of oval pailettes’ color below.
