Wooden Single Felting Needle Grip
A very handy tool to help you safely and comfortably needle felt. Solid wood, this holder comes in two parts--the handle and the slotted plug that holds the needle snugly. Insert the angle-end of the needle (the "not-sharp" end!) into the hole in the handle and insert the plug snugly, making sure the shaft of the needle is in the slot of the plug. I find this much easier to hold then clutching onto the end of a naked needle.
BONUS! A 36 gauge Triangle needle is included.
Here's a tip: I keep many of these on my workbench or in my travel pack. I have color-coded the plug with a different color Sharpy Marker and insert a different needle in each one: the blue one holds a 32 gauge, the green one holds a 36 gauge, the red one holds a 38 gauge, and the purple one holds a 40 gauge needle. When I am involved in a project and need a different needle, I don't have to take the time to remove a needle and insert a different one. I know by the colored plug exactly which needle it is. Saves time and won't break my concentration.
Here's another tip: Reverse the needle in the handle so that the sharp tip is inside the handle and replace the plug--a safe way to carry and store your needle!
a bit about Shipping...
It's an expense nobody likes to pay. And I won't be a hypocrite and raise prices on merch and say "Free Shipping!", because it's not. I'd gladly show up at your front door and hand you your order but that's not practical. It's a necessary expense, and we need to charge it. We are always looking for new ways to save on shipping, so please stay tuned. In the meantime, if the Shipping Rates we must charge are significantly higher than what the actual shipping cost, we're going to make it up to you with free items in your order. It's the least we can do...
