These gorgeous old beauties originate from the 1950's.
Made from a strong industrial plastic with steel collars, they were used in the North of England in a weaving mill and hold a wealth of beautiful social stories in their design

They make the perfect partners for stitched or mixed media collages, stitch wraps or samplers using a mix of cloth and thread.
