The turtle retractable scissors holder has a plastic loop that goes around one of the handles of the scissors and closes via a popper.

The back of the spool which holds the retractable line there is an alligator clip which can be clipped to your clothing.

This very handy tool enables you to have your scissors on you at all times. The line retracts to 21 inches and slides back into the spool when you are not using the scissors.

Fabric Eraser

The fabric eraser is useful for surface embroidery when you use a pencil to draw your design lines onto fabric.

If you by mistake draw the line in the incorrect position, use the fabric eraser to remove the pencil line.

The pencil line may not completely erase so still take care when drawing design lines on your fabric.

I find the eraser useful especially when drawing on the direction guide lines on my needle painting designs and sometimes draw the guide lines on at the wrong angle and need to remove them.

I carry the hard to find short beading needles which are excellent for goldwork embroidery when the size 10 embroidery/crewel needle will not fit through the center of purl or bullion threads. The needles are also good for very fine needle painting/thread painting. The needles are 1 1/4 inch ( 3 1/4 cm) long. The beading needles have a long slender eye for easier threading and a choice of sharp point or tapestry (ball) point. I carry size 10 and size 12 (finest).

I also carry regular long beading needles for your beading needs which are 2 inches (5 cm) long.

The magni-clips are magnifiers that clip onto the bridge of your glasses, they can be flipped up when not in use and put down over your glasses for close up work.

The magni-clips are light weight and rimless so as not to distract from your stitching. Excellent for all types of hand embroidery and close up work.

If you do not know the magnification that you require I suggest trying out different reading glasses over your current glasses to find out the magnification that you require.
