Forge Mill Needle Museum in Redditch, England and enjoyed myself immensely. You know you're a nerd when an afternoon spent looking at tiny tools like needles is the high point of your visit overseas. The gift shop at the Needle Museum had the world's best selection of needles...until I encountered the Collinghams and realized all those wonderful needles were available here in the US!
To define 'hand needlework': quilting, embroidery, huck weaving, heirloom sewing (think gorgeous christening gowns), knitting (Colonial sells knitting needles and tools too), and anything else that a creative person wielding a needle can do. You can add your comments at the bottom of this blog, visit us on Facebook, or go to the Colonial Needle website . We hope to hear from you!
