In the second half of the 18th century it became fashionable to meet and sew with friends, creating a need for a combined set of easy to carry sewing tools. Thus a different type of sewing set began to appear. From this time and well into the early 20th century, small sewing sets in all shapes and sizes were produced in a broad range of materials. One of the earliest sewing sets was the "tower type" otherwise known as a " compendium". These combined sewing sets would have been ideal to put into a chatelaine bag to take along when visiting friends.
