JAPANESE SEWING NOTIONS

Wonderful high quality sewing notions imported from Japan.

Here's what one of our customers has to say: Just a quick note to tell you how much I have thoroughly enjoyed the Japanese sewing needles and basting thread I bought from you and recently received. The needles glide through everything with no effort and sew wonderfully. They are money well spent! And the basting thread is a dream - just enough drag to hold things together and not slip, yet quite easy to tear and pull out. Just wanted you to know how much I am enjoying both!

This fine cotton basting thread is the top of the line for basting quilts, garments, and other projects.


Remove the basting threads by snipping the basting threads every three or four inches and remove them gently. Never pull out long basting threads.

FINE SILK BASTING THREAD - From Japan

When constructing silk, velvet and woolen garments it is sometimes necessary to press the garment before removing the basting thread. To avoid the marks of the basting threads showing after the pressing,  use silk thread for basting instead of the usual cotton thread. The silk thread will not leave any marks.

Remove the basting threads by snipping the basting threads every three or four inches and remove them gently. Never pull out long basting threads. 80 meter card.
