I found this package of needles in a treadle sewing machine base my grandma bought at a yard sale. I felt like I should photograph the package before it gets torn up in my sewing kit. They've made it a long way.

I also made another paper patterned piece with the ruling pen:


  1. The paper geometry honey-combish structure is SO cool! And let me say, on behalf of the label archivist's of the world, thanks for photographing that historic packaging. I'll have to post it to pinterest to preserve it for all those who may have missed your blog post.

  2. Did you know that in 1850, a packet of Redditch needles could be exchanged for a wife in the Sudan?
