Pam Reed: Bio

Pam was first introduced to fine handwork while living in Germany as a youngster with her family. The desire to create with her hands remained with her as an adult, first, as the owner of a needlework and frame shop for 18 years and then as a teacher for guilds and seminars. Many people know Pam as one of the creators of Celebration of Needlework, the country’s premier consumer show held each May in Nashua, NH. She is also the creative director of Olde Colonial Designs, a company that produces wooden items and counted thread designs for the industry.



Presented by Pam Reed of Olde Colonial Designs

“Needful’s of Mine” I just need them, want them, or can’t do without them! I have designed a special lid for this hand crafted box from Cabranmary Woods in WI. Come and spend a little time with me and create a special storage box to be placed in your special stitching room. Using 32 count cream linen with a satin stitch border bordered around vines, flowers, and bunnies to create this 4 x 6” lid. When the lid is removed it reveals three compartments for your needful items. We will line two of the compartments and create a pin cushion with a fabric of blue wool backing to be placed in one of the compartments. Each section has small embellishments included for finishing. Included is a small fob for your matching tiny stork scissors. Step by step instructions will be included for finishing of the lid and all accessories.


Kit includes: Needful Walnut Box, 32 count cream linen, Needles, Overdyed floss from Weeks Dye Works and The Gentle Art. Finishing items included Template boards, Wool, Natural batting, Fusible interfacing, Lining material and all instructions to complete the project.


Please bring to class: Paper scissors and extra lighting and magnification if needed.





Total Class fee $295.00
