Vintage Sewing items

While doing some "Spring Cleaning" I discovered
I had many vintage sewing items.
'Sew' I decided to put them all together on a shelf above my sewing machine.

From left to right we have;
Glass top canning jars filled with wooden spools and old buttons
Black cloth mending kit
Aunt Maimie's pincusion
Old packet of "Mending Silk" thread
Two wooden needle cases
My childhood sewing machine
Vintage sewing needle packets in back
Sewing machine oil can and tin
Vintage patterns behind
Travel sewing machine
Grandma's thimbles
Accessories tin
Needle threader
Needle books behind

Thanks for looking at my Vintage sewing items.
For more fun, and to see what others have to show,
go to Kelli's House.

Oh they are adorable! I own a bit of vintage sewing items but they are mostly patterns and books from the 40's and 50's.

Thank you so much for sharing...

Oh, that's a great idea! My vintage things are scattered hither and yon!

I'll have to copy that idea ;).

Visiting from Kelli's Show and Tell blog train!

What a GREAT display!!! I am so impressed. Sewing I've not done for YEARS and fear I'd sew my digits into things if I even tried. I'm afraid I've turned into a 'speed sew' type of Gal LOL!

AWWW! I am pouting cause I've been reading back and missed the contest for your INCREDIBLE apron. Its *GASP* gorgeous!

Loved stopping in and thx for sharing!

What wonderful items! I have much of my grandmother's sewing items, and love them. I use the old patterns, and still have zippers and amazing buttons I'd like to use.

Hope you are enjoying the beautiful weather that seems to be all over the state!
