Quaker Berry

Quaker Berry - linen and silk

Quaker Berry

A collection of traditional Quaker motifs are scattered across this berry design. The silk berry's central motif includes a monogram (alphabet included), and is stitched in a multi-colored palette. The linen berry motifs are stitched in a single color, although a multi-colored color key is included.

The silk berry topper is a bit of lace for a 'cap,' topped with a miniature wooden spool. Wool and pearl-head straight pins cap the linen berry, with matching wool-covered straight pins for accent.

NOTE: Silk and linen berry chartpaks have been sold separately for some time, and copies are likely still available from numerous retailers. However, due to the lack of silk gauze available for the foreseeable future, Quaker Berry will be sold as a “partner” chartpak. This new format will include instructions and charts for both berries - but no silk gauze.
