Thistle Threads Survey - Frosting Club
I would like your feedback and interest in a 17th century materials club.  The club would be for a one year, renewable subscription with quarterly shipments of threads, trims, and fabrics useful for 17th century embroidery in a collectible box.  The materials would be sourced from historic textile companies and most would be newly manufactured and often one-run only.  Threads that use a needle would be full tubes.  Trim type materials would be approximately 1/2-1 meter lengths (useful quantities), and finishing fabrics would be enough to finish a few smalls.  The cost of each quarter would be less than $100 including shipping.  The box size would be approximately 6" x 9" x 1.5".  

Threads would be applicable to stumpwork, caskets, coifs, sweet bags, and other accessories.
