Passion and Legacy Thread Packs

McBurney and Black has been delighted to collaborate with Red Strand Design as part of the Passion & Legacy international design and education project, by offering 4 Limited Edition packs of vintage linen threads.

Passion & Legacy is Red Strand Design’s first major international design project and celebrates the legacy of the Irish Arts & Crafts Movement (1886 – 1925) and two of the era’s leading needlework women, the Lethbridge sisters. The project is inspired by Dr Lynn Hulse’s research and forthcoming book, The Embroidered Furnishings of the Lethbridge Sisters (Ornamental Embroidery, London, 2017). 


We are delighted to bring you 4 different packs,  Dante, Jacobean, Castleboro and Jacobean 2. Each one contains 6 skeins in colours selected by Dr Hulse and inspired by the work of the Lethbridge sisters. Just 60 packs were offered and stocks are now extremely limited.

You will find all 4 packs in our shop in the Threads, Bobbins & Spools section.
