Fabric of Our Society

Fabric of our Society

​A celebration through the years of the universal women's culture of:

  • sewing
  • knitting
  • crochet, and 
  • embroidery.

The kit includes samples, patterns and a panel of knitted samples that can be passed around a group to handle and reminisce.

The kit has been produced by Scottish artist Teresa Lakey.

You can read a story inspired by the Fabric of Our Society kit. Visit My Knitting and Sewing Days by Iris McKenzie.
