Do you know... why men button their coats opposite to a woman's? The cost of the most expensive dress ever made? How many thousands of years the needle has been in use? Why and when men changed to long trousers? The origins of the words "sabotage" and "Velcro"?

The answers to these and many other questions are to be found in this book.

There are sections on the history of sewing tools, a chronological perspective, references for all photographs and thimbles and hallmarks to help collectors identify their thimbles and other tools.

Most important of all are the outstanding photographs of antique sewing tools that will enhance your enjoyment of the book and make you want to come back to it over and over again.
