Candlewicking dates back to colonial days when embroidering was often done with soft spun cotton thread that was also used for the wicks of candles. The fabric of choice was 100% natural muslin. Candlewicking projects still give the same lovely soft look of the original antique craft. It is used to make many items that lend elegance to people’s homes. It is also a very easy craft to learn.
