New in store: Interchangeable Needle Kits and Crochet Sets from TULIP! August 24, 2017 – Posted in: New in Store, Online store

As we mentioned after our visit to the Needle Arts Trade Show in June, Lisa and I have fallen in LOVE with products by the Japanese company TULIP.  We promptly purchased ourselves interchangeable needle sets on the spot and have enjoyed working with them all summer. From the finely honed tips to the swivel joins and flexible cords, these are pure joy – and this from two die-hard metal needle users! We are excited to have these on our store shelves now and know that many of you will be as smitten as we are with these compact yet incredibly complete sets (Tulip has thought of everything!). And if crochet is your thing, we have Tulip sets for that too 🙂 .
