This sewing box is inspired by a time gone by, when women had time to sit by a fire and hand sew, while someone in the room either played the piano or read from the latest novel. Go back in time with this updated version. The center magnet can hold either a pin cushion or a thimble. It's the perfect place to store pins, needles, small scissors, thread and more! It's the perfect gift for a sewing friend, or any sewing "wanna-be"! This box can be sewn by hand or by machine.
