this one is so handy as i can remove the tool holder and take it with me from room to room as i work on a project -- it was originally a cigar box that i stripped, stained and since i am a singer featherweight girl i decided to use the singer decals -- my real workhorse for sewing however i have to give credit to my three 1970s elna air electronic machines -- of course just as with the singer featherweights they have their names also -- workhorse helped me sew the leather on this etui

some of the tools are antiques and others are reproduction -- quality, style and functionality are always most import for me in designing a project

    hi jay
    no you know me better than that -- i am an american born and breed girl -- sweetzer sweets for me thank you -- actually i do have a cigar trinket box that i use to hold my 4 to 5 inch needles used in beading and upholstery work -- it is pretty but yet functional and i love the little match that came with the trinket box

    hi jason -- i love boxes also -- will use anything from old silverware boxes to cigar boxes etc -- will rip - sand - stain and reline usually with leather -- hope all is well with you and the family -- you inspired me to lay down my needles and go to the shop and work on a walnut box that i found the other day at the goodwill outlet -- have a great week -- ted and i did some traveling and i have totally neglected my cw family
