Glossary: Notions
I have slipped, as I so often do, into the assumption that you all had upbringings exactly similar to mine, and take the same vocabulary for granted. For those of you who grew up in a house with no button box, or pin cushion, or ancient sweet tin bursting with rescued fragments of ribbon and lace, notions are, well, all of those things and more. Buttons and hooks, needles and pins, all the small paraphernalia of sewing.
