Vintage Sewing Notions - pt 2

Today I will share some more goodies my mother-in-law has passed on to me.


The tin is not quite vintage, but certainly cute ... and rusty!

Inside ...

I can't decide which view I like best ... the sides where you can see the variety of sides, the timber (which has been replaced with plastic these days) ...
...or the labels:

The labels, I think . And particularly this one:

It reminds me of The Tailor of Gloucester - "no more twist!"

For more vintage goodness look here.

Whenever my daughters and I go treasure hunting, we look for vintage sewing notions. I particularly love Wooden sppols of thread. We also drag home zippers, buttons and trim. We don't know what we're going to do with it. Yet!

Those wooden spools are great! I love the wooden ones, they have an added charm to them. Have a great day!

Lovely spools! I recognize one from the first picture, the thin one with a chain on the label.

I love them. I think my Nana had an even older style but I can't be sure. Yours remind me of Mum's sewing.
