This set of 3 small purple violet and peach 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.
They are color coordinated with the Purple Violet and Peach Beaded Scissor Fob http://www.etsy.com/listing/178848473 as shown in the last picture.
The tips are blunt like tapestry needles, so they won’t split the threads of your fabric. Each pin is 1 ¾” long. Rubber earring nuts are used to hold the pins in place.
