  2. It is an addiction! Some day I'll gather mine together for another picture... it's been several years. I just can't help myself!

  3. Yes your collection has grown, how many do you actually use and how many just sit and look good, you have my milwards there on cards, mine and those wonderful little hooks are used every day, brought back in 1971 and still going strong,

    2. The ones on the cards or in packaging stay that way but every other shuttle in my collection has been used on at least one project since I have had it. I change my preferences for shuttles often and some are better for a particular type of pattern or thread. All in all they are my collection of "pretties" and they don't take up much room. They get a fair share of attention!

  4. I was examining the first two pictures, looking at all the shuttle types, thinking "this isn't very much." Then I scrolled down to the last two, and was taken by surprise! That's an impressive collection, and I like the storage drawers too. I keep looking for things in antique malls to better house my small collection.

    1. The toolchest is great. It is for dies and tools and is lined already with fabric. Ben bought it for me in 2012 and it has been fantastic!

  5. Oh my goodness!!! That is a lot of shuttles!!! I don't have anywhere near that many, but......with the many that I do have-I hardly ever see them since they are all on projects somewhere(smiles slighly embarrassed). :)
