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!
