We continue with the next installment of our periodic spotlight of objects, documents, photographs and other items you can find in the collections of the Historical Society of Haddonfield. Thanks again to summer volunteer Britni Dellinger for helping to compile these features.
1966.078, Gift of unknown (found in collection)
Thread winders are used to organize embroidery thread so that it does not tangle when stored. This one, found in the Society’s collections in 1966, is made of wood and has “Jerusalem” written in Hebrew on one side. Unfortunately, we do not know who owned the item, but one possibility is that it was a woman’s treasured souvenir from a trip abroad.
