I am delighted to be able to offer you some wonderful pincushion patterns from Giulia Punti Antichi.  Giulia lives in Italy in the town of Massa, in Tuscany, a few miles from Pisa, on the seacoast. Giulia’s Designs range from traditional designs to old fashioned pieces including motifs from Italy, Europe and Unites States, and are dedicated to stitchers of all ages and different levels of expertise. 

Please read the pattern package contents as some may include linen or hand dyed threads.  Please contact me if you have any questions as to where to find supplies.  I've been able to find them at local cross stitch shops or on line.

A Christmas Doll Pincushion & Thimble Purse

Giulia decided to stitch a Christmas  pincushion doll and thimble purse as a special token of love for kids bearing serious diseases.
