Antique Italian motifs inspired the creation of this sewing box and its accessories. Motifs are taken from the medieval Malaspina Castle of Massa and the beautiful Fine Arts Academy of Carrara. Massa and Carrara are both towns located in the Apuania Province of northern Tuscany.
The box and scissors fob are decorated with Carrara marble beads, turned and polished by hand and created just for this special class. Stitched with silk threads over hand-dyed lined, the box features a needlebook, scissors fob, pincushion, scissors case and matching decorated wood needle minder and thread winder.
The kit will include stitching and finishing materials, marble beads and decorated wood needle minder and thread winder. The stitches used are cross stitch, backstitch, satin stitch, Rhodes stitch, double cross stitch and a few extra special stitches. Stitching and finishing instructions as well as information about the historical places inspiring the model will be included.
