Leverage

Five dollars will get you a sewing device that can be stored in a coin purse. That's two dollars for a packet of needles and three for a spool of thread. Upgrade with an extra two dollars for a thimble and four dollars for beeswax to condition the thread.

A brief surf revealed the world of high-end imported needles designed for various applications like embroidery and quilting. It appears that I no longer have to count on inheriting fine equipment. Hand sewing needles were one of the first products of the industrial revolution -30-
