These Beehive sewing cotton packages from Manchester are beautiful. They were found in a sewing factory that was closing down and I bought them from the lucky woman who cleaned the space out. There is really something special about doing a clean out of a factory or warehouse that was dedicated to 1 task - a woodworking shop, a sewing factory etc. The energy and magic of the place is like nothing else. The attention to detail is usually exquisite and one can find discarded gems.
I thought the blue of this old paper and the string that tied it together was rare and special, not to mention the beauty of the thread for sewing.
They are available for sale at the store, Archive home in Nyack. I think we have 6 packages left in stock .
