More New Tools from Clover

The blog for the New Jersey Needle Artists chapter of ANG  mentions two new tools from Clover--

The first is a combination magnet/needle sharpener called the Sweet 'n Sharp Macaron.  Looks like it comes in raspberry or pistachio.


The second is a beading needle called the Swift Bead Quick Beading Needle.  It's three inches long with a huge flexible eye and apparently works with beads sized from 11 to 15.  It looks like a good tool for stringing beads for fringe or couching.  Each package has two needles.  Note the manufacturer says "pulling beads from the needle tip may damage the needle."

NeedlePaint's Masked Santa, with Free Stitch Guide

NeedlePaint.com has a new employee, Caroline, who introduces herself a bit in this fun blog posting.  

Caroline has done a free stitch guide for the company's masked Santa.  Isn't it cute?!

You can order the canvas from them if you are interested.  Santa is printed, not hand painted, just so you know.   People say that the NeedlePaint canvases are very well done.  You shouldn't have too much trouble knowing what color goes where on this.
