Beatriz sent me an email last week.
Lately I've been finding vintage packages of sewing needles with the cutest graphics! (All the ones I've found say "Made in Japan" . Got me to thinking you must have a collection of these and if you do, could you share it?
I don't actively collect needle-books. Sometimes when I buy a bundle or box of something they are included. I always put them in the same spot in my studio. I was not sure how many I had and if I had enough for a collection. Beatriz, I have enough for a collection! I have 7!
I love the assortment of graphics on these books.
For those of you unfamiliar with needle books, they are basically a folder with an assortment of needles inside stuck into foil. They often contain a needle threader as well. They come in an assortment of styles.
This is probably the most unusual one that I have.It contains some needles that most of the others don't..canvas needles, packing needles and saddlers needle. A bit more heavy duty in the needle department.
If you have and idea for a collection challenge, leave me a comment and finish the sentence "Show me your collection of ___." Perhaps I have another unexpected collection!
