Stitch Picker Needle Threader Set Teal Blue Lime Green Beaded Thread Picker Cross Stitch Needlepoint Frogging Tool Hardanger Embroidery by TJBdesigns

6.95 USD

This pretty teal blue and lime green beaded stitch picker/needle threader set is a must for every stitcher. Threading a needle and ripping out stitches can be two of the most frustrating, but necessary, things a needleworker does. Having the right tools makes all the difference. The last two photos demonstrate how the thread picker and the needle threaders are used.

Even the best needleworker sometimes makes mistakes. Frogging (rip it, rip it) is never fun, but at least we can make it easier. The thread picker consists of beads that are threaded on nylon coated wire and crimped in place to minimize wear on the wire at the eye of the needle. The needle is a #24 tapestry needle, commonly used in cross stitch, needlepoint and hardanger. The beaded tail adds beauty and function by allowing the stitcher to hold on to the needle while removing those stitches that need to come out. It also makes it easier to find when you flick it across the room as you race to rip out your frustrations.

These brightly colored beaded threaders are approximately 3/4" (19 mm) and flat so that you can grip them. They will easily thread tapestry needles up to size 26 with floss, pearl cotton, silk, etc.

So easy to use. Slide the wire loop thru the eye of the needle; insert thread thru the wire loop; pull the wire loop back thru the eye of the needle and the thread comes with it. Voilà!!

(image)

13.25 USD

This fun periwinkle blue and green laying tool for needlepoint will be a pretty addition to your tools and help perfect your stitches at the same time. It is color coordinated with the Periwinkle Blue and Green Scissor Fob, https://www.etsy.com/listing/214802005, as shown in the last photo.

The laying tool (also called a stiletto) is a basic in any needlepointer's tool set. It allows one to keep threads flat, untwisted, and separated producing a smooth, professional stitch. (see the last photo) It can also be used in cross stitch and other forms of needle work where multiple strands of thread, or threads that can become twisted, are used. I've added a little glamour and glitz to this needlework standard. The photo of the pointed end is an actual photo of this laying tool.

A stiletto can also make life much easier for quilters! Quilters and anyone who sews use stilettos to ease fabric through the presser foot and to keep from getting caught up in the feed dogs. It can also be used to push out corners in the corners of sewn items.

The laying tool is approximately 7 inches (17.78 cm)The photo with the ruler shows an accurate measurement.

It can also be used as a shawl pin or hair stick, but be advised that the end is sharpened to a point. If you would like one WITHOUT a point, just contact me here. http://www.etsy.com/convo_new.php?to_username=TJBdesigns I'll be happy to make some for you.

7.95 USD

These pink pearl and dark purple beaded stitch markers are pretty and practical. Keep track of important spots in your knitting pattern with these special markers. The unique marker bead is for marking the beginning of a round in circular knitting.

My stitch markers are made with nylon coated wire which gives them that teardrop shape. The markers are shown on US size 10 1/2 needles, but knitters can use them on almost any size needle because the beads will hang lower than the stitches and not interfere with the current row. They also slide from needle to needle easily. The come on a gold plated earring wire for easy storage.
