Wil-Hold Sewing Box Filled with Vintage Sewing Notions Fabrics Scissors thread Trim

Sale price $75.00 Regular price $95.00

This vintage Wilson Wil-Hold sewing box is chocked full of high-quality vintage sewing notions, including a very nice pair of Wiss pinking shears and a small pair of embroidery scissors from Germany, with the Palm Tree mark and gold toned handles. I have also included vintage fabric in shades of blue and pink, with a small, textured piece in gold, orange, brown and green for contrast. You will find a lovely collection of vintage buttons in lavender, purple, pinks, and gray, as well as an assortment of whites and creams, with bone buttons included. Lots of pretty trims and laces help fill out the collection, some vintage and some antique.

I test all fabrics, threads, trims, and accessories for quality prior to listing. All items will arrive in the sewing box, packaged securely.

I recommend this listing for those who love vintage sewing and want to add to a collection, or for those who may be novices at vintage. What a marvelous and special Christmas gift this would be for a special person!


Large Wilson Wil-Hold sewing box with two trays ~ golden yellow color, clear lid, in very good condition, with usual wear ~ top tray shows one chipped corner at the left front ~ may be viewed in photo #1 ~ 14" x 9" x 8 1/2"

One handmade pin cushion, filled with crushed walnut shells to provide heft and keep pins sharp. Made from vintage linen in greens and golds and edged in mustard colored tatted lace. Attached is a small emery pillow to hold needles ~ just pass them through the pillow, and the emery will clean them of oils. The pillow provides a place to park needles so they don't get lost in the pin cushion.
