This exquisite and exclusive Thread Pocket Book was inspired with encouragement from Kate Bowles, our talented book maker/binder. Many of you will seen and handled Kate's hand made books and will understand just how special this is! The completed project has a pocket back and front and two on the inside cover and as you will see from the pictures we have added needles, scissors and other stitching bits. We have even added a tiny magnet to go in the front pocket so you are able to rest scissors and needles whilst you stitch!
We comissioned a bespoke pocket book with pockets the correct size to take our Madeira spiral packs and Kate has delivered yet again! Kate makes her books using traditional methods and they are all hand stitched so this project by definition will be limited!
You can see how the book is supplied if you look through the images on this page. The special card outer houses eight envelopes and is lined with images from the legendary Ackworth School Sampler Collection. The CSG has an agreement with the School to use their motifs in our Sampler ranges.
When visiting Vaupel and Heilenbeck earlier this year, Jane Greenoff chose a special linen band with a Jacquard band of leaves with this project in mind. The linen band is folded to create a pocket and then wrapped around Kate's beautiful book. The design is stitched in cross stitch using motifs from Ackworth School and is made up by hand. You could embellish your version with your name worked down the spine using the alphabets supplied
The kit is supplied boxed and includes pure linen band with leaf motifs, pre-sorted threads, gold plated needles, tiny chatelaine scissors, mini-magnet, charts and instructions.
