Special Supplies

Needles:
Japanese Embroidery needles Handmade flat eyed for flat silk and Machine made for couching, stored in needle felt.

Tekobari:
This is a very important tool made from steel with a very sharp point. It is also referred to as the stroking needle and is the most useful embroidery tool. The uses are for laying silk threads to smooth and flatten the embroiderers stitches. Is also suitable for Canvas work.

Japanese scissors:
They are useful for cutting off excess silk at the end to leave a very short tail on the back of the work and cut it off flat to the fabric.

Awl:
The Awl is used for the making of twisted threads and is a small sharp tool, which may also be used for tightening the lacing thread when framing up.

Paulownia Mirror Box:
The traditional storage box for tools to preserve them and to protect them from moisture. This wood has the ability to absorb moisture and also can be used as a mirror light.

Brush and Shell Powder:
Transferring designs onto fabric and onto embroidery foundations.

Velvet Cushion:
The finishing process consists of removing the dust and beating with a small velvet cushion.

Koma:
Wooden spools for non stitchable threads metal and silk. The thread is wound onto Koma to control the thread, tension it and to prepare the laid thread for Couching.

Frames:
The frames for Japanese Embroidery tension the embroidery correctly and are made to a traditional standard. They are made from a light timber such as pine and come in two sizes 74cm small and 98cm for the larger Phase pieces.

Wedges:
