usetoolsWhat are your favorite tools as a needleworker? Since cross-stitch is my main deal, I have a few things I can’t do without, including petite cross stitch needles, sharp embroidery scissors, tweezers, and a bin for my thread ends aka orts. Recently over at Eileen’s Machine Embroidery Blog there was a great post about all the tools necessary for certain jobs she does as a crafter. Some I had never thought about. Head over to read about them. But first, share with us in the comments what your necessary tools are for your favorite needlecrafts.

    Thread Heaven, suitable needles for the job – I love the gold ones by JJames for cross stitch, my QSnap frames and my seam ripper!

    Things I cannot stitch without. are embroidery scissors (preferably 4″), pin cushion , megnifying glasses (I use simple reading glasses). Not counting the needles themselves, as long as I have the 3 aforementioned items, I’m ready to stitch!

    One thing that I use which wasn’t mentioned is big ziplock bag or a clear project bag. as a cross stitcher I always have a bunch of projects going and I find it easier to put each project with its chart, floss, needle, scissor, measuring tape, etc all to gether in one baggie
