Before homes were equipped with sewing machines, cotton threads were often presented on thread cards. The choice of forms and colours was very varied and these cards have now become collectable items. I'm seeing lots of these at auctions and antique markets these days - they are quite lovely. Very inspiring! These came to me via Julie Reed.

Fiona Richards | Cartolina Cards . . . . I have never considered myself a trend follower. The only things I follow are my instincts. Collecting and creating have taught me to trust the art that moves me and question the fads that don't. This blog reflects the diverse design influences behind my work and all the things I love.
