Here is Catherine's Sewing Case, in two versions: the original colors I used in Catherine and gentle purples.


Kits are available in both colorways and the instructions give the thread numbers for both.


Description Catherine's Sewing Case

One of the largest and most elaborate sewing cases I have made, Catherine's Sewing Case is stitched in silk with accents of metallic thread, including a twisted goldwork thread and Kreinik braids. The elaborate beading includes Swarovski jewels, real pearls in several sizes, gold-color balls and faceted Czech beads, crystals and seed beads. If you look closely at the green side panels you will see all the little seed bead decorations. These are the threads and jewels I used on Catherine herself.


If you scroll down you will see the insides of the sewing case and the back. On the insides, notice that the pockets are all beaded with pearls, crystals, gold beads and seed beads. The pockets are made to hold a needle threader, needles packets, scissors and a laying tool.


Closed, the sewing case measures 4 1/2" wide x 6" tall,  stitched on soft ivory (color) congress cloth, two pieces 13" wide x 10" tall and one piece 8" tall x 7" wide.


The full kit includes the instructions, 3 pieces of congress cloth, all threads and beads. Scroll down to see photos and a description of the kit.


The instructions are 35 pages long, with 11 Oversize Graphs, 2 color photos and a title page.

Above: Laying Tools in various shapes. Please let me choose one for you. For Catherine's Sewing Case I have bundled the Needles, Laying Tool and Threader. If you really only want the Laying Tool, see Elizabeth's Chatelaine: they are on sale without needles and threader.

Bundled Together (because it would drive me nuts otherwise): One Laying Tool, One Needles Packet and One Needle Threader.

Paper Needle Folder with Beading Needles and Thread $11.00 including shipping.




For several years Kate made needle packets with beading needles and threads, but she wanted to retire from the job.


I thought it necessary for me to offer needles I know will work with the pearls I use so often, so I have made a folder with Queendom Website's Logo on the cover. It has two each #10. #12 and #15 beading needles in felt and a spool each of Nymo thread '0' and '00' included.

E-Week 2016 has ended, so nothing more for sale.

I will leave all information in place so that you may check your kits and patterns as they arrive.
