Japanese Koma

Japanese Koma

$7.81 USD

The wooden Koma is a square-ended wooden spool used to maintain tension with Japanese/Japan threads.

The Japan thread is wound onto the spool. If the embroidery is to be worked by sewing down two strands of Japan thread down at the same time then the Japan thread can be wrapped onto the spool double or two separate spools can be used with a single strand of Japan thread on each spool as it is easier to keep the two strands at an even tension as it is sewn down.

Size: 2 1/2 inches (6 1/2 cm) long by 1 1/4 inches (3 1/4 cm) wide

A mellor also known as a mellore or melor is a perfectly manufactured tool for metal thread embroidery.

The mellor is made out a soft smooth metal that is not abrasive.

The narrower end is used as a stiletto to widen a hole in the ground fabric to plunge a heavy twisted cord or metal thread to the back.

The round end is used to nudge and push metal threads into position and is gentler on the metal threads than using tweezers as the mellor has been polished and has smooth rounded edges so less likely to damage the metal thread.

Needles – Size 12 Crewel Embroidery (Bag of 15 John James)

<a href="https://berlinembroidery.com/product-category/hand-embroidery-supplies/goldwork-supplies/goldwork-tools/" rel="tag">Goldwork Tools</a>, <a href="https://berlinembroidery.com/product-category/hand-embroidery-supplies/needle-painting-supplies/" rel="tag">Needle Painting Supplies</a>
$3.14 USD

The size 12 crewel embroidery needle can be used for fine surface embroidery techniques where one single strand of embroidery thread is used such as needle painting, goldwork and fine white work.

The needle has a long eye and a slender shaft and a sharp point to the needle so that the stitches can be worked close together and there is more control for the placement of the stitches.

I recommend using the size 12 crewel embroidery needles for sewing down down No. 8, No. 9 and No. 10 gold purl threads as the purl threads are a very narrow gold tube that other needles may not fit through.

Embroidery or crewel needles have a long eye for easier threading, a slender shaft and a sharp point to the needle so that the stitches can be worked close together and there is more control for the placement of the stitches.

The needles can be used for surface embroidery and sewing.

Crewel/embroidery needles are not suitable for counted thread work as the point of the needle would easily catch the threads of the fabric, distorting the counted work.

Size 10 are my choice needles for fine surface embroidery in which only one single strand of silk thread or embroidery cotton is used.

For very fine embroidery. when only using a single strand of fine thread or for sewing down No. 8, No. 9 and No. 10 gold purl threads use size 12 crewel embroidery.
