This painting is part of a series called Great-Grandma’s Sewing Thread. I call it “great-grandma’s” because we are now living in a modern age and thread no longer comes on wooden spools. Our great-grandmothers would have used sewing thread spun on wooden spools, but not so today. Nowadays, sewing thread comes on plastic spools.
Even though manufacturers are no longer making wooden thread spools, it doesn’t mean they have no value. If you happen upon some of these vintage sewing notions at a garage sale or flea market you may want to think about acquiring them. Or perhaps you already have an old sewing box stored in the attic that belonged to grandma or great-grandma full of wooden sewing spools, whichever is the case, don’t get rid of them. They still have some usefulness.
An advantage of these vintage thread spools is they last a long time and can be used in numerous other ways once their thread is used up. The wooden spool does not lose its usefulness just because it is no longer fulfilling its original function.
When I was a child, I remember playing with empty wooden spools. I strung them up on string and made necklaces with them. I also used them for furniture, among other things, when I played with my Barbie dolls.
Wooden thread spools can be used for various arts and craft projects. By using your imagination you could turn them into some beautiful artwork or something else that would give them some renewed purpose. Use them yourself or for a project your children could enjoy. Better yet, use them in a project that you and your children could enjoy doing together.
This painting has a companion painting called “Great-Grandma’s Sewing Thread #1”. Whether purchased with its companion or not, either of these paintings will look great proudly displayed in a sewing or craft room. Click on thumbnail for larger image.
