Canada, Land of Hope

A sewing set designed for a wooden tray and cache. It has been inspired by my love for Canada, the country where my husband first started his medical training and where we spent out honeymoon.

In this country, a lot of desperate refugees can nowadays find refuge and hope To my Canadian friends and the Government of Canada, I am here to say thanks for their inspired actions and generosity. Might you get back what you are giving today and what you gave my husband at the beginning of his successful medical career. You are an example to young generations who need proof of hope and tolerance.

Inside the stitched tray, there is place for a strawberry pincushion, a scissor case and a needlebook.

Scissor fob and pins by Roberta Dazzini not included in the chartpack, available for purchase at Giulia Punti Antichi.
