As promised, I am starting to list the vintage quilt kits I have on hand to add to those already listed.
Remember, all my vintage quilt kits ship free anywhere in North America and we share 50/50 anywhere in the world other than North America.
A pair of twin sized Paragon Remembrance cross stitch quilt kits including vintage Peri-Lusta floss!!
Size 72×103 inches each
The Remembrance pattern is adapted for cross stitch from a 19th century traditional applique quilt in the red, green and ochre colours which were so popular at that time and spread throughout the United States as settlers moved west into the plains and the foothills of the southwest and northwest. This is a slightly folky, but still quite formal pattern and would look lovely in a guest room furnished in mid 19th c antiques. My fingers are itching to open these kits and start stitching, so please put a hold on them and save me from myself – hehe!!!
On counting up the skeins of floss it is apparent that the original buyer, who purchased these beauties in 1958 ( 52 years ago! receipt enclosed), was the careful sort and she purchased more than she would need. Peri-Lusta floss in these quantities is simply no longer available at any price so the new owner will be incredibly lucky not to have to substitute. Below is a picture of one of the 4 smaller bags of floss – as well there is a huge ziplock bag with as much again as all 4 together!!
My price for a set of two twin sized cross stitch quilt kits with a more than adequate supply of Peri-Lusta floss to complete both quilts is $350 USD + $25 USD SHIPPING
Remember, until December 31, 2010 shipping within North America is free and shipping elsewhere will be split 50/50 between the customer and myself. You will receive as a free bonus, a set of 3 lavender sachets/
more than enough vintage Peri lusta threads
Be sure to check back often as I post still more lovely vintage kits in lots of time for Christmas giving. Free shipping!!
