I wanted to use red and green embroidery floss to decorate the gifts on my Holiday Gifts quilt. So I looked through my sewing supplies to find needles to use. I found a package of Crewel needles from Woolworth that cost only 34 cents!! I think those needles are from the 70’s when I started doing crewel embroidery. The needles may be old but they worked great on the project. LOL at the price!
