Rare Sidney Counted Bargello Sapphire Needlepoint Pillow Kit


Manufacturer :  Paragon

Availability : In-Stock


As a classic film fan, I've always been interested in the day to day details of film stars. When I found out that some of my favorite film and broadway actors and actresses enjoyed needlework, I was in heaven! I Finally Found the connection. ( Can't sing, can't act, but I can stitch! ) Needle-ess to say, I've been a collector ever since that time. The thing I love about Sylvia Sidney's needlepoint designs is the look of complex stitches that is invariably created with a few simple stitches put together. This Sapphire pillow is among my favorites. You'll work wool yarns on a blank 10/20 penelope mesh in Scotch Stitch, Bargello, Herringbone and straight gobelin stitches  to create this fascinating geometric piece for the needlepoint enthusiast.  Also comes with the authentic  Syliva Sidney Original Custom Label which you may personalize. This treasure arrived in overly shopworn packaging which has been replaced.
