Vintage Needle Card & Pin Cushion

Heart Shaped


Both items are the identical size heart shape and I assume they were made by the same woman.

The Needle Card is made of fabric covering a cardboard base. Dark blue binding frames it and there are 5 different fabric hearts stitched onto the front of the fabric covered card. You can see where a loop of floss was once attached to the top to allow for hanging.

The Pin Cushion is made of similar fabrics as used for the Needle Card. The base is also stiffened by a cardboard insert. The perimeter of heart was originally finished with a wide satin-stitched frame of cream-colored floss, which has worn with time and use. The green cushion is intact.

This wonderful set was obtained at auction in Lancaster County, PA.
