I have stumbled upon several old, needle folders over the years. I don't actully collect them but, like to recliam them when they are available. I hate to think of them getting lost by the wayside.Oh & I think I have that spool kit at home some place. I used to love to do that :)

I used to love French knitting, (using the spool) but mine must have been a posh one as it was made to look like a doll. Happy memories
