About this Vintage Sewing Thread Painting
Title: Great-Grandma’s Sewing Thread #2
Size: 6″ w x 6″ h
Support: Gallery Wrap Stretched Canvas
Description: A still life painting featuring four vintage sewing spools made of wood. Each spool contains sewing thread of a different color: red, orange, green, and blue. A sewing needle is stuck through the green spool. The background is painted in a neutral gray color to match its companion painting. The painting is one of two in a series and is signed by oil painting artist Teresa Bernard.
This small 6×6 inch painting is hand-painted on gallery wrap stretched canvas. Its small size makes it ideal for small spaces or areas with limited space. Because the composition stretches around the sides of the canvas, it does not need to be framed before being displayed. However, if you prefer to have it mounted in a frame, Great-Grandma’s Sewing Thread will look great in your home or office, or any place it is put on display.
This painting comes with an official Certificate of Authenticity. More information here.
This painting is part of the Great-Grandma’s Vintage Sewing Thread series. I call it “great-grandma’s” because we live in the modern era, and thread is no longer sold on wooden spools. Sewing thread spun on wooden spools was probably used by our great-grandmothers, but not so much nowadays.
Sewing thread is now sold on plastic spools.
Manufacturers are no longer making wooden thread spools, but that doesn’t mean they have no value. They are still useful in some ways. One advantage of these vintage thread spools is that they last a long time and can be reused in numerous other ways after the thread runs out.
I recall playing with empty wooden spools as a child. I strung them on a string and used them to make necklaces. When I played with my Barbie dolls, I also used them for doll furniture, among other things.
Vintage wooden spools are useful for a variety of arts and crafts projects. Using your imagination, you could transform them into beautiful artwork or something else that would give them new life. Use them yourself or for a project, your children could enjoy. Better yet, use them in a project that you and your children could enjoy doing together.
“Great-Sewing Grandma’s Thread #1” is a companion painting to Sewing Thread #2. Companion paintings are available for purchase separately. Whether purchased separately or together, either of these paintings will look fantastic proudly displayed in a sewing or craft room.
