Can you stitch? Thread The Needle Day is a chance to get dust off your stitching skills, or to learn how if you don’t know how. Why not organize a stitch-a-thon, or stitching lessons with friends to celebrate?
Quaint vintage buttons adorn this set of pin keeps based on motifs from an antique sampler. The design is stitched on 35ct confederate gray from Weeks Dye Works using Belle Soie Silks from Crescent Colours. Contact Milady’s Needle for wholesale information.
Sewing machines were once common household objects, used for repairing worn and damaged clothes, as well as for making new items from fabrics and material – in recent years, however, they’ve largely disappeared from the average household.
Sewing Machine Day encourages you to make use of a sewing machine – dig yours out of your attic or cupboard, or consider picking a new or used sewing machine from a charity store or second hand shop. Repair, alter and create clothing, curtains, fabrics and decorations for the day!
