Thread Winders

Our ancestral seamstresses and tailors did not have the convenience of buying thread already wound on spools at the Five & Dime. Instead, they purchased it in skeins, then transferred it to a thread winder, a small piece of wood, bone, ivory or mother-of-pearl, decoratively cut out into snowflake- like patterns.
