Traced linen for babywear and tableware

No you can't see the back, I was only 10.

No, this is not one of The Stitchery designs, but you get the idea

Oooooh, the universe moves in mysterious ways.  Only last week I was lamenting the apparent disappearance of the traced linen tableware that we all learnt our basic embroidery stitches on.  On Wednesday this week, The Munchkin and I attended the Sydney Craft and Quilt Fair and were very excited, (Ok, … I was excited, he tried to pull stuff off the table before I took the pram in another direction) to find a stand for The Stitchery. 

These classic treasures are still available in a range of traced designs on table cloths, duchess sets, centres, runners, doilies on drip-dry cream or white fabric or cream linen.  Kathy and Allen also supply traditional babies clothes and accessories in cotton flannelette in a range of colours, starcella; an 80% cotton and 20% wool mix in cream and a drill in sky blue, pink or cream.  Like Victoria House Needlecraft, The Stitchery is a family owned business.  In fact they have been supplying Australians with lovely traced linen since 1929. 

If I had a dollar for every time we get asked for traced linen and tablewear, Victoria House Needlecraft could probably help Kevin and Wayne out by funding a third stimulus package.  Rather than providing relief and assistance to politicians, we have decided to reduce costs to our customers and send you straight to the source.  While The Stitchery welcomes all customers, you will need to shop online or phone for an appointment.
