When I stayed with Eva in Norway, I gave her a wooden box like this one, to keep all her embroidery threads in, to say "thank you for a wonderful holiday". I normally keep my embroidery threads in plastic storage containers, but I had always wanted a box like this myself, and when I saw a similar box on the Jaycotts website I decided I just HAD to have it.....
.....there is plenty of room for all my threads, and a drawer at the bottom is large enough for scissors and needles and thimbles and sewing hoops. Oh, and the lid has a removable section, which means I can embroider or quilt something special to insert in the lid to make this sewing box unique. Every girl needs a special box for her treasures - I love it!
