Project 1 – A Wessex Stitchery Mini Biscornu
Project Code and Cost:  LM 1805  $20 (EFT payment only)        
Wessex Stitchery is a counted-thread technique using simple stitches to create a range of diverse and pretty patterns. Popular during the 1920s and 1930s, most of this style of embroidery was designed and worked in the Wessex area by Mrs Margaret M Foster. Colour, simple stitches and lettering were some of the most prominent features.   Reference: Wessex Stitchery, Gay Eaton (2000).

This mini biscornu is a small, 8-sided, stuffed ornamental pincushion. It is constructed from two square pieces of Aida or linen fabric (forming the top and bottom of the cushion).  Each corner of one square is attached to the centre of a side of the opposite square. The biscornu is decorated with embroidery and secured in the centre by a button, creating a small depression.
