Sewing kit

19th century


Due to the relative difficulty of acquiring needles, needle cases with screw tops were needed to protect the valuable tool. This sewing set also includes two awls, which are used to pierce holes in material, and it includes a bodkin, a blunt needle with a large eye for drawing tape or ribbon through a loop or hem.
