Black and white photograph of a small sewing etui or pouch. The etui is made from green silk and is very unusual, in that it rolls out and becomes a length of material, embroidered with numbers. The numbers denote inches, so the etui, once unrolled, can be used as a measuring tape for sewing. Both stitching and embroidery are very finely carried out.
Traditionally, this sewing etui has been associated with Susanna Wesley (1669-1742), mother of John Wesley.
