A Favorite FindThursday, June 14, 2012
I visited a local quilt shop yesterday. While I was there a woman brought in her 6 year old daughter to find a sewing class for her. The young girl told the sales clerk she wanted to learn to sew. (I was amazed to say the least! I had to beg my daughter to even think about sewing....Laura...are you reading this?)
It made me think of these cards I purchased last spring at an antique sale. I've seen the traditional sewing cards for young children. They are made from heavy cardboard and the children thread something like a shoelace through the holes in the card. But these were something new for me. Have you seen any like them before?
After finding these small sewing cards at the sale I grabbed them right off the table. I couldn't believe how cute they were! A young child would actually have to use a needle and thread or floss and really sew the details on the cards.
This card wasn't completed. It gives you an idea of how they looked before sewing. I wish they still made these!
Our newest quilt book, In The Meadow is going to the printer tomorrow! Will show a picture of the cover then.
