Nothing quite like a good tool.

I love me some good tools!  I find good tools are a little like buying jeans.  You never know which pair will really be the one you will keep coming back to and which will be the one you put on, look in the mirror and take off, again and again.  You just never know, because if one did, I would have a much larger balance in my bank account.


This is why I want to share some of my successes with you, (re-needlepoint, not jeans...).  This one is my own, and they are phenomenal!  I've always struggled with the floss cards out there on the market, too small to write everything you want on them, glossy so your ink smears, flimsy so they don't last.  I designed these for my own use and thought you might like them.  My Adorn floss cards are 2.5" square and are printed on super duper heavy and lovely card stock paper.  On the back there is room to write the name of the thread, obviously, but also where you've used this thread, i.e. which design.  To me, that is super helpful.

They are available for purchase on our shop HERE.

I'll be sending out a few for you to try with every order placed, for the next few weeks.  I love sharing good tips and if you have a tool that has passed your test, please let me know!

I would add the name of the thread, i.e. watercolours, waterlilies, etc; perhaps also the manufacturer; dye lots; and any other info others may need.

I also prefer two punch holes - preferably opposite each other. one for the whole (majority) skein and one for the odd piece I cut off and left over.

just my two cents.

Totally agree with Jackie. I like bigger holes too for thicker threads.

I agree, I like to know all the information about a particular thread; manufacturer, color number & name, lot number, project, etc.
