so where did you find all the goodies?

The majority was from an antique fair.

Looking at your treasures makes me wish so much that I had kept the things from my grandmother's sewing machine drawers. I DID keep some wooden spools and a Lipton Tea Needlebook. I'll find them and post a picture for you to see. Your posts are so interesting!

Thanks Jane! can tell that I am quite passionate about the collection. If you venture into a thrift shop, look for the sewing and knitting bits and pieces - you never know what you might find!

and if so, where may I purchase one.

Thank you for any info you can give
