Hello my vintage loving friends! I've missed you all the last couple of weeks. It's good to be back!
Vintage Thingies Thursday is hosted by Suzanne at Coloradolady. Click here to see what she and all my other VTT friends are sharing this week.
Several weeks ago, I shared a great sewing basket I found at a flea market. You can see that post here if you missed it. I'd like to share this sewing basket this week.
It isn't as old (or as interesting) as the other one, but it has been with me for a long time. This is the sewing box my mom bought me to take to school for seventh grade home ec. That was 1970.
Recently, I cleaned out my sewing box. That is why it looks so neat. Buried at the bottom of my sewing box was this dressmaker's tracing kit.
It was purchased at TG&Y around the same time as the sewing box. Any one remember TG&Y? I loved that store!
Below is another item that stores my sewing supplies. Not sure of the age as I purchased it at an auction.
I love this piece. The top and bottom drawers are nothing special. But the two middle drawers are special.
The second drawer has pegs along the sides to hold spools of thread. I think our old boxer girlie thinks it should hold treats for her.
The third drawer has a wooden tray at the front. It has two troughs. The larger one is just perfect for holding packages of bobbins and sewing machine needles.
When I got this sewing cabinet home, these were some of the things I found in it. In this picture, I included the tracing kit from my sewing basket. I have no idea if these things are sewing tools or just things the previous owner just stuck in her cabinet. The two long metal rods are not needles as they do not have eyes. The shorter one is pointed on both ends while the long one is pointed on one end and flat on the other end. There is a LARGE, heavy needle above the red handled thing. Any one able to tell me what some of these things are?
Thanks for stopping by to see me this week!
