Wooden sewing kit that disassembles. A needle can be held inside the handle. The handle is rounded and smooth while a grooved section separates the equally spaced concentric grooves at the top. The object can be unscrewed into three separate pieces. The center piece remains a handle for a hidden needle while the bottom section has a small storage space.
