There was nothing a Victorian Lady enjoyed more than attending her sewing circle regardless of whether it was held in elegant surroundings or in a Village Hall. The attraction was not just to sew or exchange sewing patterns or learn new sewing techniques and of course to exchange tales of assignations and romance. This was also a time to show recently purchased items such as Scissors ,Pincushions , Needle Cases , Thimble Cages , Sewing Compendiums and Chatelaines of every description.

We have an interesting and useful range of Needlework tools. Some are traditional in design and date back several hundred years and some are from the last 20 years but with a Victorian flavor.

Our products are designed by us and can be found in many Needlework shops around the world and also at Victoria and Albert Museum in London, the Royal School of Needlework and The Embroiderers Guild at Hampton Court Palace.

Our products are unique and desirable. They make excellent and beautiful gifts for the needle worker and can be considered as “tomorrow’s heirloom”.

Nous concevons et fabriquons des accessoires et cadeaux de couture de style Victorien pour les travaux d’aiguille et de broderie.
Nos produits sont uniques et seront appréciés comme des trésors du passé par ceux qui en hériteront. Nos châtelaines, nos pelotes à épingles et nos ciseaux raffinés rendent les étalages des vitrines encore plus attrayants et intéressants et se vendent bien.
