A New Needlework Nibble

Two posts in one day!

Look what I received in the post today. I don’t normally blog projects until I work them but I wanted to show gorgeous supplies for the latest needlework nibble.

Thistle Threads has issued a second venture in fund raising for museums using Needlework Nibbles. The Tulip Slip kit is being sold to raise funds for the new exhibit at Winterthur which will feature the Plimoth Jacket. The piece is based upon a 17th century tent stitch slip and is faithful to the original. It includes the linen and soie d'alger silk threads needed to complete the tulip. A limited number of optional finishing kits are also available. $10.00 of each kit sold will go to Winterthur and be designated for the exhibit, entitled With Cunning Needle: Four Centuries of Embroidery this purpose. $5 of each finishing kit sold will also go towards the exhibit.

Happy Stitching
