The eighth session of the Frostings Box (What is the Frostings Club??) a lovely box containing 28 threads suitable for embroidery of caskets and stumpwork as well as other 17th century embroidery.  There are both wonderful gold threads and beautiful new silk threads in this box.  This box has some delightful items you will have never known existed.

Frostings boxes purchased on installment payments will be shipped after the last payment.  Those paid in full will have a earlier shipment date to keep ahead of the dreaded Christmas shopping period.

This Frostings Box 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 first class mail for all regions.

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.
