Shaker Spool Box - i111 Kit

by Betsy Morgan

Handy counted thread box for sewing thread spools with places for scissors, needles and an emery.


Inspired by the elegance and simplicity of Shaker design, this charming, counted thread box is designed to hold your most used sewing threads safely, securely and ready for use.

Three spools are cleverly tied into the box with silk ribbon, leaving just enough space for a dainty needle emery, and a panel on the lid holds a handy pair of small scissors, making
this a perfect sewing kit for at home or when travelling.
