Sewline Sure Guide
Needle Threader

The "Sure Guide Needle Threader" will thread very fine needles (size 9-12). The case slides open to reveal a clever mechanism. Simply insert the needle and lay the thread in the groove. Pressing lightly on the lever directs a shaped pin into the thread through the needle eye. If the pin hits resistance it will stop, preventing it from breaking. The case will hold needles and the top has a magnet so you can easily pick up those small needles.

Mark-B-Gone Marking Pen
Blue $

Available in blue ink for light fabrics and white ink for darker fabrics.  For best results, use on washable fabrics.  Not recommended for dry clean only fabrics.

  • Always test marking pen on the fabric you are using to be sure marks will completely disappear.  Some fiber contents, fabric finishes or dyes (red and pink in particular) may not be suitable for use with this pen.
  • Mark fabric lightly.
  • To remove marks, rub gently with clean cloth moistened with plain water.
  • If marks reappear when fabric dries, repeat removal process.

NOTE:  Do not iron over marks or launder before completely removing with plain water.  Some laundry products containing sodium hydroxide or sodium carbonate may "set" marks if they are not completely removed before laundering.
