This set of 3 small teal and purple handmade beaded counting and marking pins for cross stitch and needlepoint is a must for anyone who does counted thread embroidery. Use the pins to count from one stitching area to another, then mark the spot. Use another to check yourself by counting and marking from another stitching area to the previously marked spot. Or insert them at intervals on long rows of stitches to save yourself from recounting.
The tips are blunt because the ‘pins’ are actually tapestry needles, so they won’t split the threads of your fabric like dressmaker or straight pins will. Each ‘pin’ is 1.4 inches (3.7cm) long. Rubber earring nuts are used to hold the pins in place.
