Wooden pin cushion and wooden needle cases 

There are countless needle holders and pin cushions among collectible sewing items. As with the tape measures, many could be found in souvenir shops, decorated with transfers. The presence of such items in souvenir shops is proof of the importance of these objects in everyday life. A popular souvenir gift from Dieppe was ivory needle holders in a vast array of forms: umbrellas, fish, keys, figurines. The pin cushions came in the form of baskets, books and barrels, among others.

In my book Haberdasheries of Yesteryear, you can get a sense of the imagination of the manufacturers.
