History of needles.

The first ever needles were made of flint and then bone which could be made alot smaller that flint. Sewing was mainly primative being larger holes through skin.

The oldest iron sewing needle was found in Germany dateing back to 300 B.C. But the Egyptians made then from silver, copper and bronze before this.

Needle making came over to England in around the 17th Century and it was a small cottage industry, run by families, the majority of these needlemakers were in the town of Redditch.

Although the cottage industry of needle making has gone, our needles are still manufactured in the UK.

Also known as a chatelaine.

Is an excellent way to keep your scissors to hand.

Scissors are 2 3/4 ins (7cm) total length.

This type of appendage stems from chatelaines, which was an ornament or keys worn by a lady at the waist. 

What is a “ Chatelaine “ ? A Chatelaine is an ornamental appendage worn by ladies at their waist such as keys, glasses, handbags and purses. The sewing chatelaine was very popular during the reign of Queen Victoria from about 1850 and disappeared round about 1904 when fashion changed and skirts were no longer full and long.

 The dictionary states the word “ chatelaine “ in the context of ‘ lady of the castle ‘ dates back to 1196. As a name for a waist hung ornament , the earliest date given is 1845.

« Une châtelaine » Qu’est-ce que c’est ?   Une chaîne châtelaine est un accessoire que les dames portent à leur ceinture, où sont suspendus des instruments de couture, des clefs, des lunettes, un sac à main ou un porte-monnaie. 

La châtelaine de couture fut très appréciée sous le règne de la Reine Victoria à partir de 1850 environ et disparut vers1904, lorsque la mode changea et que les jupes ne se portèrent plus aussi longues ni aussi volumineuses.

Classic Stitches, Issue No 91,
Following on from the success of her last book, Austrailian designer Alison Cole continues with her goldwork theme with this title.
As before stumpwork is incorporated into the designs too. Full instructions accompany each project and the lovely photgraphy enhances the pages.
There are early chapters on techniques and materials so that those less experienced in the craft can find out what they need to know before beginning on the the stunning projects.
There are eleven projects varying in size and degree of difficulty and there is no doubt this is aimed at the serious hand embroiderer.
Even if you only stitch one of these designs it will have earned its place on your bookshelf.

This lavish soft cover publication continues on in the style of her first book All That Glitters - having sections dedicated to Basic Supplies and Requirements, Techniques and eleven projects – ranging from small beginners pieces to larger, more challenging designs. Once again, the book is laid out with clear diagrams, colour photographs and hints and tips, making it a worthy addition to the embroiderer’s bookshelf.
