    I was given a sewing cabinet yesterday with all the items in it and came across these and have no idea what they are or what they are used for. haven't seen anything like them before and everything in the cabinet was sewing related so just wandering if I have a new tool to use or what. thats for any help.

    Good question! Maybe they have something to do with weaving?

    The cabinet is an old sewing cabinet, my mother has one exactly like it that she got from my grandmother...the other things look almost like darning things but i'm not sure.

    They look like shoe trees! My mother used them very often when her shoes were wet....

    I had an old white sewing machine that was in a cabinet like this one that I gave to a friend. didn't want to take the time to clean and repair. love this cabinet and all the stuff in it. was just loaded, threads, sissors, manuals, pins, button, tape measures and just everything. after a hard day this blessing came my way.someone on here is surely to have seen them so we will find out together.
