From Vicky De Angelis's review published in the Nov/Dec 2015 Needlepoint Now magazine.
Usually when something new comes out on the market, we think bigger and better. This new tekobari goes against the rules -- it has slimmed down to be thinner, but better than ever. [...] I do like the new thinner feel and the finer point for aiding in frogging even the smallest of stitches.
What is a tekobari, you ask? It is a handmade tool from Japan designed to help in the proper laying of threads on you canvas. Although created for Japanese flat silk, it is my go-to laying tool for all of my stitching.
