Thread counters, or thread 'hoppers', are a great tool to add to your needlework bag. The two needles are used for counting over on your fabric. Just anchor one needle, and start counting with the second needle. When you reach a certain number, like 10, 15, or 20, just anchor the second needle. Remove the first needle, 'hop' over the second needle, and count some more! This are fantastic when gridding fabric, counting out from the center, or marking your place. The two needles are held together with colored thread and joined with a beautiful set of beads. Please let us know what colors you would prefer and we will make something just right for you!
