Strawberry Emery by Pam Buda for Marcus Fabrics

A strawberry emery is the little stuffed strawberry you find dangling from a tomato pincushion.  In the 19th century, the tomato was filled with wool or cotton scraps, even horsehair or sawdust and used as a pincushion.  The strawberry was filled with emery, a very fine mineral sand, that removes any bumps or burrs, and sharpens the needles.  Many emeries were beautifully made of satins and velvets, and embellished with silver accents.

"These highly collectible sewing basics show how ordinary items were created with extraordinary workmanship.  I adore the, and they are the inspiration for my new read an black fabric collection Strawberry Emery.  There is a great variety in this collections; blue reds, orange reds, deep reds along with creams and blacks."  ~Pam Buda
