If you have been reading my blog for a while, you may have noticed that I like to do things that are a little weird and little unexpected, so when I exhibited at the Creativ Festival in Toronto this past October I wanted to do something a little more interesting than plonking dolls on a table.
So I made (along with the creative and practical genius that is my Dad) super-sized thread spools to use as display plinths. Of course, I don't actually live in Canada anymore, so the giant thread spools are still in Ontario and getting all lonely in my parents' garage.
Now these orphaned spools are looking for a caring person who will love them in all their over-sized glory.
Make your craft, quilting or sewing display stand out by using these giant thread spool plinths. Or maybe you'd just like them to look pretty in your studio space.
Here are the nitty gritty details:
Plinths - 6 plinths with a natural wood top and bottom, super-size yarn for thread, with the spools painted to tonally match the yarns.
The spools measure:
2 - 32” tall - 131/2” wide – wrapped with teal coloured “thread”*
1 - 42” tall - 14” wide - wrapped with pink coloured “thread”
1 - 38 3/4” tall - 13 1/2” wide – wrapped with lime green coloured “thread”
1 - 27” tall - 13 1/2” wide – wrapped with purple coloured “thread”
1 - 34 1/2” tall - 13 1/2” wide – wrapped with aqua coloured “thread”
1 - 50” tall - 12” wide - – wrapped with purple coloured “thread”
*Table– The two 32” spools can be used either on their own as plinths or can be made into a table by attaching the table top. Pre-drilled and counter-sunk holes in the table top and spools make it easy to attach the lime green painted wood table top.
1 table top 24” X 34 3/8 “ goes on top of the 2 - 32” spools – painted lime green to tonally match colour scheme
Peg Boards – Two peg boards are painted teal to tonally match the colour scheme and can be hung with chain and S-hooks to walls for items to be hung for display.
2 peg boards 48” X 24” – painted teal
The spools are very stable but quite light to carry.
If you live in the London (Ontario, Canada), Ingersoll, Woodstock or Tillsonburg area of Ontario, Canada we will deliver the spools to you free of charge. By "we" I mean my sainted parents.
