A Little Box Of Treasures


I have a wealth of vintage sewing supplies – from 1940-2000, and I have been putting together tins containing a random assortment of goodies.


Each tin will contain the following

  • 2 spools of regular sewing thread
  • 2 skeins of tapestry wool
  • 2 skeins of 6-strand embroidery floss
  • at least 2 metres of ribbon, in 2 or more different colours
  • at least 2 metres of lace, in 2 or more different designs
  • at least 20 buttons – various materials [e.g. MOP, wood, plastic]

Each tin will be packed absolutely full – so if there is still room after all the above items have gone in, then I will pack them with a few more items! Typical contents


If you want a small box of goodies to inspire your creativity – or perhaps a little gift for a friend who enjoys sewing and crafting, then this could be what you are looking for.

Price £5 per tin [including postage] email me to order and I will send you a PayPal invoice. Order more than one item, and there will be a reduction on total cost!


Stash In The Attic

IM003274I have been sewing, knitting and crafting all my life- over 50 years. And collecting materials dating back to before WW2.recently I’ve been seriously considering the Great Stash up in the loft. There is Far Too Much there. In ten years, I am hoping to retire to a little bungalow in the country – and I can’t take it with me when I go! and even if I were to spend the next 10 years sewing and crafting, I do not think I could use up all my hoard by 2021.



paypalSo I am planning to sell some of my treasures.
I’ve sorted out the materials, and set up a PayPal account.

If you are keen on sewing, and other crafts, you may find something here of interest.

Keep watching, as I shall be adding things as the days go by [and the nights grow longer!]
