It is made of clear coat finished Baltic Birch and measures 10"x4"x6". A satin nickel finish handle on top allows for easy transport of all your supplies between stitching locations.

Two 3 1/2" spindles with easy turn knobs hold thread spools or bobbins for your current project. The cup area corrals scissors, marking tools, rulers, and seam rippers. Three felted wool balls in different colors (colors will vary) will help you sort your needles by size and type.

Please note that the cover on the lap app you receive may differ from the one in the photo. Rest assured all covers are of a bright modern design
The only needle specially designed for weaving fabric strips and bias tape, invented by a weaver.
The WEFTY fabric weaving needle is 5.5" long and comes in a set of two. One is 1" wide for use with 1" fabric strips, and the other is 1/2" wide for use with 1/2" fabric strips.*
The WEFTY has a tab at the end for looping the end of the strip (much like the eye of a needle), securing it in place as you weave. It's flat construct ensures that the WEFTY will glide through your project without disturbing the design - all while holding and pulling the fabric strip tucked neatly behind it. The grooves on the top allow you to choose how to move it through your project: You may grip the WEFTY by the sides, or push it from the top using just your finger.
Made of plastic. *When prepping fabric strips to weave, I fold the sides into the middle and press. This is how I come up with the dimensions of the fabric-to-needle fit.
