I'll give to you a paper of pins (for that's the way true love begins . . . )

Travel along as Linda Ligon sits down with Loene McIntyre as she takes us from its earliest days when a pin was no more than a thorn for holding cloth together, to pre-industrial times when a skilled craftsman could make 40 pins a day, to modern times when machinery churns them out by the millions. The straight pin is one of the most necessary and yet undervalued tools in a craftswoman's workbasket. So taken for granted, and yet with such a rich and intriguing history.

With this needlework video workshop, you will:

  • Explore the manufacturing and marketing of straight pins
  • Learn about the rich history of straight pins' place in society and the home
  • Imagine a time when straight pins took a prized place in the extravagant pincushions of overwrought Victorian homes
  • See some of Loene's extensive collection of antique and collectible pins

With Loene's wealth of information and enthusiasm, you will acquire no end of great cocktail-party conversational gambits.

Wonderful program!
Loene McIntyre's pin program is fact filled, extremely interesting, and such a pleasure to watch. Her pin and pin cushion collection is museum quality. I learned so much from this video. Never knew about mourning pins! Cannot wait to watch the other three videos I downloaded and I am so pleased to have the entire set. I highly recommend these videos.
