Plying her needle and thread . . . Stitch! Stitch! Stitch!

You can't sew cloth without a needle, and a camel can't pass through the eye of one. Needles come in many sizes and shapes, each with a specialized purpose, from tailoring to leatherwork to quilting to sail making to creating fancy millinery. No well-prepared lady in days of yore would be without one, hence Victorian "nanny" brooches and the needle stuck in the hat brim of every indigenous Andean woman. Join as Linda Ligon sits down with Loene McIntyre as she guides you through the fascinating history of this seemingly humble tool.

Needle Review
Loene McIntyre's collection of needle packets (which I collect), needle containers, thimbles, and cases is unsurpassed. Just amazing! I love all of the history surrounding these items - from R.J. Roberts packets, to Millwards, to the Earl of Stanhope, to the beautiful little Avery cases, etc.! This program is so well researched and should be viewed by all serious needle collectors!
