The post with show and tell photos from the January meeting brought a couple of questions about the two embroidered clocks, so I asked Kathleen and Gloria to repeat the story for those who weren’t there. Kathleen’s clock was in her family, although her mother and aunts don’t recall much about it. Gloria found hers at an Antique Emporium in Front Royal, VA for just $35. They were delighted to see the twin clocks temporarily reunited, and to compare notes on the stitching.
Little is known about the original designer or kit. The selvedge contains this information: No. 01 022X (PSK23) Made Expressly for the American Home by Paragon Needlecrafts. Maybe a reader of this blog will know more.
