Ann Spence 1801 Sewing Set

This sewing set as inspired by the original Ann Spence 1801 Sampler. A few motifs of the sampler were used for the etui, the needlebook and the needleminder platform, while the strawberry scissors fob was tuned with the border of the sampler.

This set includes four wooden sewing accessories created by Elisabetta of Stitched Tales (, matching with the color palette and the motifs of the sampler:

– 6 ¼x4 1/8 in (16×10.5 cm) decorated threadkeeper

– 1 5/16×1 5/16 in (4×4 cm) magnetic needleminder

– 15/16×15/16 in (2.4×2.4 cm) decorated button for the etui

– 13/16 in (2 cm) strawberry button for the scissors fob
