Gilded Grapes
without Silver Silk Twist

$15.00 Kit SOLD OUT

Instructions for this Needlework Nibble are available in the Web Projects section of the website. This project uses gilt sylke twist to form a cluster of detached buttonhole grapes perched on a leaf stitched in silver sylke twist. Grapes in the 17th century were stitched in contrasting colors or materials, seemingly to help define the shapes when viewed form afar. Because of this, the motif is a good means to sample a variety of colors of gilt sylke twist. Six colors of GST are included in the kit as well as a choice between silk thread for the leaf and an experimental run of silver sylke twist. Be one of the first to test out this cousin to gilt sylke twist and help us decide if it becomes a product line!
