 The thirds session of the Frostings Club (What is the Frostings Club??) a lovely box containing 46 threads suitable for embroidery of caskets and stumpwork as well as other 17th century embroidery.  There are five different types of threads, in multiple colors each.  These are heavily slanted towards trims that are used to give texture to 17th century stump work.

This club is a way to get new threads manufactured or imported that weren't part of the original slate for the Cabinet of Curiosities and Stumpwork Courses.  During the 17th century, the embroiderer had a variety of threads that is unequaled today.  This has one shipment.  

The boxes will be shipped via priority mail for USA shipments and first class mail for Canada and the rest of the world and all shipping costs are included in the club pricing. 

The next installment is in the works in manufacturing and those who subscribe to Session 3 will be given first choice on Session 4, which will also be a single box.

Of the threads in this box, many are limited to one manufacturing run for others, with leftover threads from the manufacturing run to be sold after the Frostings Box is delivered.  The threads are provided in 'useful' quantities, such as what would be sold retail and are not samples.  That means that a specialized gimp would be 2 meters, a trim would be between 18" and 1 yard, and so on.  The length was chosen to allow use in multiple places in your work according to the envisioned uses in 17th century embroideries.

There will be only 300 boxes for Frostings 3 due to manufacturing quantities - 9 boxes are available.
