I bought a sewing basket full of old sewing supplies from a garage sale and these two things were in it. Trouble is I have NO clue what they are. This may be a stupid question, but does anyone know what they are? Are they even craft related? I'd assume they'd be related to knitting, but again I have no idea. Cheesy Any input would be greatly appreciated! Smiley

Thank you, wtpdesigns, for giving me a place to start.

After a massive amount of searching, I think I've figured out what they are!

They're old tuckers! (Also known as "tuck makers") At least, this is the closest my research has led me! One has "H.C. Goodrich, Chicago" on it and I learned that the Goodrich brothers patented the tucker. However, they certainly don't seem to be sewing machine attachments.

I'd love to know if anyone knows if I'm correct or not. Grin
