Irish Spring – Sewing Companion & Scissors Fob

This sewing companion and its scissors fob complete the model Irish Spring – A Sampler Needleroll published in Amicizia in Fiore – Floral Needlerolls – A Friendship Collaboration Design. This collaboration design for eight romantic needlerolls was created with the support of eight Italian designers for the show “Fili senza Tempo – Fest di Primavera”, held in March 24-25th 2012 at the Castle of Formigine, Modena, Italy. The following designers took part to this project: Blu Cobalto, Giulia Punti Antichi, Mani di Donna, Mingiustitch, MTV Designs, Passione Ricamo ©, Red House by the Willow Tree, Romy’s Creations.

A huge thank goes to my dearest friend Romina Petrucci of Romy’s Creations for the beautiful palette of hand dyed threads created for this collaboration project. It has been a true pleasure to embroider with her threads!
