A unique still life oil painting featuring four vintage sewing thread on 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 in the lower left-hand corner.

This small 6×6-inch work of art will fit anywhere there is a limited amount of wall space you want to embellish or spruce up. Great-Grandma’s Sewing Thread #2 is hand-painted on a small gallery-wrapped stretched canvas. This type of canvas allows the artist to paint on the sides of the canvas giving it a polished look thereby eliminating the necessity of a frame. However, it can also be framed if you prefer. Either way, it will look great in your home, or gallery, or office, or anywhere it is put on exhibit.

Artist Comments

This painting is part The Wooden Spool Series. I call it “Great-Grandma’s Sewing Thread #2” 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 these wooden thread spools, but that doesn’t mean they have no value. In some ways, they can still have some usefulness. One benefit of these vintage spools is that they last a long time and can be reused in a variety of ways long 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.

“My Grandmother taught me how to sew. It’s a beautiful skill. She sewed almost all her own housedresses. Never wore pants. Bought her underwear and outer clothes!” — Bobbi A, ART ALL ART, MeWe
