Sewing Treasure Chest

My quilting tackle box often is sought out by fellow quilters during classes and retreats because it holds everything they might need—needles, thread, rotary-cutter blades, scissors, safety pins, measuring tape, and even medical tape. It also has the tomato-shape pincushion I bought for my first sewing class when I was 14 years old, which was about 50 years ago!
