"Sturbridge Box" !

Have you ever wanted to know the secrets of Beautiful Finishing? Learn Lisa’s expert finishing secrets which she uses to create this gorgeous sewing box designed just for this leaflet. 

This beautiful Box is inspired by the Olde Sturbridge Village inspired fabric you see on the sides. The gorgeous lid top is fully embroidered with a scene showing the Main Town Commons, and even includes the meeting hall, blacksmith's shop, and bank! When the lid is removed, the sides of the box drop down and show the interior with places for your needlework tools! I’ve used some delectable overdyed silks, silk flosses, and beads. Be prepared for a few new stitches, and enjoy the Cross Stitched areas too. The finishing is easy, if you follow Lisa’s detailed directions and coloured photos.. In addition to the finishing techniques, you will also find clear and easy instructions and step by step photos to make your own cording and simple tassels and how to attach them to your lovely creations! See how easy Beautiful Finishing really is! enjoy! -Thea
