Fun Fact about Star Cards:
- These star cards are an amusing way of presenting threads which was very popular in days gone by. It was an era when the world was not saturated by images as we are today: an item where an image was revealed as the product was used was a veritable attraction.
- Frederique Crestin-Billet redesigned the Fil au Chinois star cards in a traditional manner, with a variety of colors in the images.
