In My Lady's Work Bag: A Striking Queen-Stitch Needle Case In My Lady's Work Bag: A Striking Queen-Stitch Needle Case

For centuries the needlework accoutrements in a lady's workbag took many forms. Such items were embroidered in a variety of forms and techniques. During the 18th century, we can find simplistic to highly embellished items such as huswifs, pincushions, pin keeps, sewing cases, card cases and small pocketbooks. Many of these items were kept in embroidered workbags or pockets.

We have adapted a stunning 18th-century card case to form a small needle case. The project will be worked in queen stitch using silk on a 28-count linen background. The imperial Chinese yellow background and black diamond grid design provides a striking contrast for the strawberries worked in graduating rose tones. The inside will hold a woolen needlekeep and pocket. The width is approximately 4" wide and the final length to be determined.

We will also view an assortment of antique needlework accoutrements in an informal discussion.
