Beautiful Thread Winders

Hands Across the Sea Samplers showed off some lovely antique thread winders on their Wordless Wednesday blog posting this week.  I think they are all 19th Century, although I am no expert.

Thread winders are used more in cross stitch than needlepoint as far as I can tell from my stitching friends, but lovely tools are lovely tools, no matter how (or when) you stitch.  This little article about historical stitching tools is quite interesting.

I found both modern and antique ones for sale on Etsy.

Enjoy dreaming of the perfect thread winder for your favorite silk....
