Magnet Docks and Slice Tweezers

Nimble Needle has the coolest tools!  Karen is taking a Margaret Kinsey silk and metal embroidery class with her local EGA chapter.  She talks about the class on her blog.  The fact that many of the threads are no longer available makes me sad.

On a happier note, I did not know that the Evertite dock magnets (made to clip over your Evertites) came in two widths.  The larger magnet is for Evertites that are 19-33 inches long while the smaller dock magnet is for anything 18 inches or less.  I didn't realize that Evertites had different widths, depending on their length, but that makes sense.  A longer Evertite has to be wider to support the weight.

Evertite dock magnets seem like very useful items, particularly if you want to use a magnet but don't like them clamped on your needlepoint canvas.  Nimble Needle has them in stock but not on their website, so here are photos from elsewhere.

I had never heard of Slice tweezers, either!  Slice Soft Touch Tweezers are available quite a few places.  I don't know if Nimble Needle stocks them or not.  Shop around as the prices vary from $19.99 to $25.  They come in red or stainless steel handles.  (The red finish is non-slip, in case that's important to you.)
