The Needle Book is an old textile tool used by those who sewed. They were made from various materials and stored the pins and needles necessary for working. Needle Books are still used by professional needleworkers and artists to keep their tools of the trade close at hand.

All supplies and tools furnished for your use. Handouts provided so you can make more at home.
