Some interesting history of the humble sewing needle as provided by Wikepedia:
A Sewing needle
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A sewing needle, used for hand-sewing, is a long slender tool with a pointed tip at one end and a hole (or eye) at the other. The earliest needles were made of bone or wood; modern needles are manufactured from high carbon steel wire and are nickel- or 18K gold-plated for corrosion resistance. High quality embroidery needles are plated with two-thirds platinum and one-third titanium alloy. Traditionally, needles have been kept in needle books or needle cases which have become objects of adornment.
Sewing needles may also be kept in an étui, a small box that held needles and other items such as scissors, pencils and tweezers.
