Madras Lace Vintage Workbox Weight & Counting Pin

Out of stock

Hand crafted from vintage French linen, Madras lace and other odds and ends, this workbox weight can be a needle stand, a pincushion, or a scissor weight. I have added a lace medallion from a upcycled lace collar and a silk ribbon bow.

Filled with dry rice and preserved lavender petals, it has a pair of gilt lion’s tail scissors attached to a twisted cord. The counting pin is sadly one of the last as my lovely lady who made them for me has retired. There are a few left but when they are gone, they are gone… Supplied boxed and measures 5in square (12.5cm).

The story of this little treasure

For over the past 30 odd years I have been mixed up with the stitching cross stitch business and in 1996 I formed The Cross Stitch Guild. In later years we ran The Guild from Pinks Barn until 2017 when the Guild was sold to the marvellous Andrea Thompson for whom I now work when I am not making things for you!

After finding bits of loveliness by emptying my attic, cupboards, and under the bed I then discovered brocante fairs and all things vintage… After Finder of Treasures was launched (It was two years old on the 8th of May 2022,) I discovered how much I loved looking for treasures for you and me. That is how workbox weights came in to being – little bits of lace, lovely fabrics and interesting buttons – what is not to like?
