This was my Grandmother’s thread box. When she gave it to me, I think I had plans to do something crafty with the wooden spools but I’m feeling more sentimental now that she’s gone. I’ve just left them all in their place and peek in at them now and then.
I’m guessing these spools must be from the 50’s …maybe some from the 60’s. My Grandma was a homemaker until her youngest children went to school in the early 60s and then she worked outside the home full time. She rarely sewed after that but she did teach me to sew when I was a kid, and I loved looking through all her sewing goodies.
