Deerfield Pocket & Chatelaine (deposit)

Margaret Light

After paying the deposit, the tuition will be $75 per day

We have selected 4 Sundays spread out over the year so that you will be able to complete your project over 2018.

In early American society, most women wore a pocket (or pair of pockets) underneath their skirts to keep small items secure and easily accessible.

In class we will learn the stitches to complete a flat pocket of white linen (22cm x 30cm) using indigo blue threads, and the chatelaine pieces to be stored inside. These include a scissor sheath, an emery barrel, an acorn pincushion, a thimble bucket, pineapple tape measure holder and a grape needlecase. The designs are based on early crewel work using the stitches employed by the Deerfield society.

The pocket is bound with blue and white tape and the chatelaine pieces suspended on tapes from a ring at the top.

Skill level – Intermediate or beginners who have done some basic surface embroidery.
