New Sewing Wall Art & Artist Janet Wecker Frisch


Have you seen the new Sewing Prints in our Spring 2013 Catalog? Inspired by vintage illustration, these sewing themed framed prints are refreshing pieces of wall decor that allude to a favored pastime of many.

Sewing Seeds

Pictured here to the left is our Sewing Seeds Print. A fun interpretation of the term “Sewing Seeds,” we make note of the large pear adorned with buttons. “The fruit of the spirit,” arches over the ripe fruit, as to further imply the intended message. Accented with a border of inspirational words, the image will take you back to signage from the 1920’s and 30’s. Ideal for sewing or craft room wall decor, you might also consider pairing with our Majestic Sewing Machine Print, shown below. Both are a giclee style print with a textured finish.

The Majestic Sewing Machine Print, as with Sewing Seeds, is set in a black frame with brown trim detail. The “Majestic” is advertised here as a “Household Sewing Machine,” and proved true as it was quite popular during the early 20th century. Other details include black and white advertising, spools of red and green thread, and a green winged, silk moth. At 15″ square, they would make ideal companion prints, if displayed together on your wall.

Either could offer a thoughtful gift idea as well, for the vintage advertising or sewing machine collector. Made in the USA, customers can now save $10 on each item during Sturbridge Yankee Workshop’s Annual Spring Sale, going on now.
