I'll give to you a paper of pins (for that's the way true love begins . . . )
Travel along as Linda Ligon sits down with Loene McIntyre as she takes us from its earliest days when a pin was no more than a thorn for holding cloth together, to pre-industrial times when a skilled craftsman could make 40 pins a day, to modern times when machinery churns them out by the millions. The straight pin is one of the most necessary and yet undervalued tools in a craftswoman's workbasket. So taken for granted, and yet with such a rich and intriguing history.
In This Video You'll:
- Explore the manufacturing and marketing of straight pins
- Learn about the rich history of straight pins' place in society and the home
- Imagine a time when straight pins took a prized place in the extravagant pincushions of overwrought Victorian homes
- See some of Loene's extensive collection of antique and collectible pins
With Loene's wealth of information and enthusiasm, you will acquire no end of great cocktail-party conversational gambits.
“I enjoyed listening and seeing the history of pins through this particular collection. Just imagining how rare the first pins were to where we are today is astounding. ”
