Sophia Amelia: Colonial Williamsburg Pincushion Doll

Instructor: Giulia Manfredini of Giulia Punti Antichi

Class Details

Limited Seats Available!

This pincushion is my tribute to Colonial Williamsburg. The unique porcelain half doll from Brier Rose features auburn locks and wired arms for easy costuming and posing. She will be mounted on a sturdy padded base and will feature a skirt and bodice stitched with colorful floral motifs. A hanging pocket attached to her waist is stitched with matching floral motifs; also attached to her waist is a small chatelaine with a diminutive pincushion, needlebook and a pair of miniature scissors. Sophia Amelia features a lovely hat. The small pincushion, the needlebook and the hat will be fully taught during the three-day class.

This Pincushion Doll includes the following: cross stitch over one and over two threads, backstitch, pulled Eyelet stitch, rounded Rhodes stitch and double herringbone stitch.

Stitching and finishing instructions, as well as information about the historical background of the model, are also included. Special handmade pins for the doll will be available for separate purchase

The class kit includes the handmade and hand-painted Sophia Amelia half doll and all stitching and finishing materials, including hand-dyed silk threads from The Thread Gatherer, 35-count ecru Italian Linen from Sotema, Italy, lace, ribbons, fiberfill, finishing fabrics, a Styrofoam cone and small pearl beads for the doll necklace.
