Eloise Twilight’s 
Etui . . . 

Each etui is hand made at Still Water Bindery in Vermont - these are not an import from another country! Each etui is carefully hand made and the materials are painstakingly chosen to complement each other. The vintage buttons are chosen to match the colors and textures of the silks and ribbon that make up the etui.

Each etui is starts from large sheets of archival binder’s board, cut to various sizes, then covered with book cloth, silk, ribbon, and padding to create individual pillows that hold various sewing needles and a thimble. Traditional bookbinding techniques are used to make the etui, that open to the surprise and delight of all that lift off the lid of the severe rectangularly shaped box!

After repeating this opening process several times, then the beautiful fabrics and the various needles that are secured in the ribbon on top of each petal are admired. A printed diagram housed in the lid describes the various needles and their uses.

Eloise and Linda Lembke, of Green River Bindery, designed this etui one Christmas, and Eloise has been making them ever since. There are over 80 individual pieces in each of these etui, and each takes about 40 hours to construct. These are labors of love! 

Custom etui can be made with your own fabrics and buttons. These would be a perfect bride’s gift for starting her home, made from her wedding and brides maid’s dress fabrics, or from family heirloom fabrics. Please call Eloise to discuss your special needs.
