Manufacturers frequently made display materials available to retailers to help encourage increased sales of the company's product. The Boye Needle Company product display not only displayed sewing machine needles, shuttles and bobbins in an attractive dispenser, but also included a chart to help determine the appropriate size accessory needed for different makes of sewing machines.

From the Collections of The Henry Ford

Boye Needle was founded in 1906 when James H. Boye and two businessmen from the sewing machine business joined forces. Boye Needle Company was launched with a patented, revolving cabinet called the “Rotary Case," which housed sewing machine needles, shuttles and bobbins suitable for a variety of home sewing machines. This was a tremendous innovation at the time as consumers had difficulty finding the correct needles and other replacement parts for their sewing machines.

The Rotary Case was very successful and supported Boye’s expansion into sewing machine parts and accessories such as belts, oil and screwdrivers along with sewing needles and sewing notions. In 1917, Boye introduced the first complete line of crochet hooks made in America. Through years of development, Boye became recognized as the premier supplier of crochet hooks and knitting needles. Today, the Boye brand is housed under Creative Simple Solutions (CSS) Industries and continues to create innovative products.

A History of the James Boye Commodity Cabinet

by Claire Sherwell and Bill Grewe

With grateful thanks to Chrys Gunther and Dave of Suffolk

The original name for the Boye rotary needle case as used by the inventor, James H Boye, was Commodity Cabinet, rather than needle case. Having a simple to use merchant display cabinet was a big selling point for Boye's traveling salesmen. Boye display cases were made in great numbers, with most outlasting the stores in which they were used. Inside the display cases tubes or packets contained needles, shuttles, bobbins or other merchandise. These cabinets were designed for ease of use and to prevent the accidental mixing of items. Such cabinets and cases weren't available in Europe or Australia.

Wooden Case

Boye initially designed and patented a commodity cabinet as early as 1903 in Minneapolis, MN. His main idea was to provide an improved needle case and index to assist in providing the correct needle for different American badged sewing machines.

At that time, Boye said needles were sold under about 150 machine names and it was well known that many of these used the same needle. In fact the 'main machines' on the market used only 12 different types of needles. So Boye began with an index of these names and needle types pasted into the lid of a box holding color-coded tubes or boxes (he suggested blue, green, red and yellow). This first box was rectangular with a hinged lid. As an example, if you looked for an "Ajax" machine it would have a red mark indicating that the proper make of needle would be in the row of red-topped boxes/tubes. It would be easy to replace a needle case in the correct area due to the color-coding.
