My Mum's Mum was a great knitter and sewer and my sister was given her wool basket with all its contents while I received her fabric basket. There is a pair of scissors with her name inscribed on them which don't work very well, but I do have the little pair of sharp scissors of hers which I would be lost without.
Nanna gave a sewing box and fabric for Christmas one year. I think I was also given a barbie doll with the idea being that I would sew clothes for it but I still have the shirt that I made for myself from the fabric and the holly hobby sewing box. I remember Nanna making loads of little items for fetes and fundraisers. You would see cardboard trays of little knitted dolls and other little crafty items.
