Treat yourself or someone you love to this thoughtfully chosen and beautifully packaged collection of sewing machine needles, charts, and useful information--plus a handy and gorgeous magnetic pincushion!
This Collector Tin Limited Edition includes 49 high-quality Schmetz sewing needles manufactured to fit all home sewing machines. Each needle is specially designed for sewing specific types of projects using particular fabrics and materials. The 49 sewing needles arrive in 8 packages, organized by intended use:
- S-1850 Costume Pack needles (9 needles)
- S-1851 Costume Pack needles (10 needles)
- S-1853 Knit & Stretch Needles (5 needles)
- S-1854 Felt & Craft Needles (5 needles)
- S-1855 Upholstery & Home Decor Needles (5 needles)
- S-1856 Piecing & Quilting Needles (5 needles)
- S-1857 Fleece Needles (5 needles)
- S-4505 Vinyl/Super Non-Stick Needles (5 needles)
Complementing this large selection of specialized needles, the Collector Tin also includes a 40-page booklet: the Schmetz ABC Pocket Guide. The guide gives detailed information about each type of sewing needle and when to use it, along with an explanation of how its design makes it particularly effective for that intended use.
With many needles to choose from, the manufacturer recognizes the need to identify each sewing needle quickly and accurately by both type and size. To facilitate identifying both features, the Schmetz sewing needles display two color-coded bands. The color of the lower band always identifies the needle size. The color of the upper band identifies the needle type. To ease the identification task, the Collector Tin includes the clearly organized Schmetz Color Chart.
But not every needle has the upper color band (Schmetz makes too many needle types for that). Other needle types can be identified quickly by tip and eye. The Collector Tin includes another useful chart--What Needle Am I?--to identify a sewing needle's type by the appearance of its tip and eye.
The magnetic pincushion in the Collector Tin is a Grabbit from the very attractive Grabbit Agate Collection. The colors vary, but each is lovely. With your magnetic pincushion, there's no more picking up spilled pins or needles one by one--you sweep them up with your Grabbit. There's no more stopping work to push pins into a cloth cushion--you drop them onto your Grabbit. And there's no more shaking, tipping, or fumbling for pins--they are right there, ready on your Grabbit!
The beautiful Collector Tin that holds this spectacular collection of useful sewing items measures 6-1/8 inches square and stands 2-5/8 inches tall. The Collector Tin is white with a cover design illustrating 12 needle types arranged in a clock face. The Collector Tin comes packaged in a white box with a printed red bow.
