c. 1750s Houswife Kit, Basic


Basic Housewife Kit

Included in this kit are:
variety of c. 1750 to 1770 reproduction cottons cut to size.
spool of 50/3 off white linen thread
wood thread winder
cake of bee's wax
assorted needles
1/2" cotton tape for binding housewife 1/4" cotton tape for closing housewife Sewing instructions

This is a good item to start with since it gives new people a chance to practice several stitches and introduces them to sewing with linen thread. Because the pieces are so small, often the pieces show printed fabrics with the character of c. 1750s even though sometimes later prints are used. A brief indication of the background of each print or chintz is included with the directions. The picture illustrates a pined kit along with the items for the basic housewife kit.
