Company Houses


The "company house" appeared during a boom in the coal industry in Nova Scotia which, at the turn of the twentieth century, saw hundreds of workers arriving daily to towns like Glace Bay. To offset the resulting housing crisis, companies constructed and rented out accomodationsm deducting the rent directly from a worker's pay. Various styles, now privately, can still be seen in mining communtiies.

Comes with 14 count Aida cloth backing, cottom embroidery floss, embroidery needle and complete instructions.

Finished size (unframed): approx. 15" x 5"


Each of the items in our store has been given a weight for calculating single item shipping. When ordering single items, this amount will show up in the shipping section of checkout like expected.

Due to the nature of the number of items, varying weights and sizes of the products in our store, it is possible for us to ship multiple item orders cheaper than their single item costs indicate. That is why when we process your completed order your method of payment is not immediately charged. Our Order Desk will evaluate the items you have ordered and will calculate the best possible shipping price for you. This amount will always be equal to or less than the amount indicated, never higher.
