Antique, vintage pincushions and needle cases.

Whilst sorting though a few boxes last week I came across a lot of needle cases and pincushions so thought you might like to have a look at a few of them and be tempted.

or on the Rag Rescue facebook page.

With your permission I am build up the list and have created a post on the right hand side bar which you can dip into.
