Frostings 2 is discontinued
The second session of the Frostings Club (What is the Frostings Club??) a lovely box containing 39 threads suitable for embroidery of caskets and stumpwork as well as other 17th century embroidery. What is in this Frostings Box? Check out this blog to see the threads that are included.
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 3-month subscription 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. 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. 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 2 will be given first choice on Session 3, which will also be a single box.
Of the threads in this box, 3/4 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 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.
The first 450 boxes will be complete. One color tube was shorted in manufacture and the last 50 boxes will be prorated for the missing tube.
