The fabled thread
Against the background of self-isolation, many have come to grips with creativity, which has become one of the ways to reduce the level of anxiety and distract from what is happening in the world. In December last year, representatives of Etsy said that the demand for needlework kits has increased by as much as 221%. Scientists were not surprised by such data: in the years after the First World War, embroidery was used as one of the therapeutic practices in the treatment of PTSD in soldiers. Therefore, in these turbulent times, we advise you to also get creative - especially since on the Internet now you can find sets for every taste and wallet.
We also liked the set of the British brand The Fabled Thread, which offers to embroider a picture based on Aesop's fables, which will also be an excellent decoration for the interior. Founder Eppie Thompson says she became interested in embroidery after successfully trying to DIY a weddingt for friends - since then the hobby has become a way for her to escape from stress at work and a kind of meditation. The Englishwoman collects all the sets in her London apartment: in addition to fables, on her website you can find sets for embroidery of funny musicians, camels and covers for interior pillows - all sets are accompanied by detailed video instructions. And if you want to hang your art on the wall, you can purchase cute multi-colored frames from Thompson.
