The long awaited Frostings Club (What is the Frostings Club??) containing over 60 threads suitable for embroidery of caskets and stumpwork as well as other 17th century embroidery.  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 6-month subscription will have two shipments, one in early December 2015 and one in early March 2016.  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.  If you are interested in a monthly payment plan, click on the blue links above.  For those choosing a monthly subscription, the boxes will be sent out after payment 3 and 6 respectively.  If you want to pay in two lump sums, email me at tricia@alum.mit.edu.  Full payment is by the drop down tabs above  

The next two installments are in the works in manufacturing and those who subscribe to Session 1 will be given first choice on Session 2.  

Of the threads in the boxes, many will be limited to one manufacturing run, for others, this box series was the impetus to get them into production and they may have a slightly longer lifetime.  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 5 meters, a trim would be between 1/2 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.

Please email me to see if any spots exist.
