Antique bobbins were made from hardwoods in a variety of shapes and sizes. I love the patina and distressed appearance that they have from their use in th early textile mills. They make excellent candleholders, as well, I think that they make a very unique display when grouped together. The bobbins are attractive reminders of the past.
If any of you have an antique bobbin collection, I would love to see it!
