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!

and other projects.
Remove the basting threads by snipping the basting

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.
