Gather me Up! – A collaboration project of Giulia Punti Antichi and Mani di Donna

This design is a product of a shared finishing idea to create a needlebook, pincushion and scissor fob.

It was design my the Queen City Sampler Guild, located in Cincinnati, a.k.a. the Queen City. One of Cincinnati’s most important monuments is the fountain The Genius of Water in Fountain Square, which is why I decided to represent queen and fountain in my design.

Hand-painted wooden rods to close the purse are included in the chartpack.

Wooden needleminder by Stitched Tales (Elisabetta Fugazza) and pins by Roberta Dazzini are not included in chartpack. Available for purchase at Giulia Punti Antichi.
