Sometimes it’s nice to be invisible..this may help!

Happy New Year everyone!

The holidays were crazy and sometimes I wanted to be as invisible as one of Santa’s elves! Now that all the celebrating and gift giving is over I’m guessing all of our customers, clients and students were the most sought after secret Santa’s of the season.

To help get your creative mojo going for the New Year we are adding new products, more kits and learning videos. 

We’ve taken all of your wonderful suggestions and advice on how to improve our supplies and learning tools so stay tuned for some surprises during this month. To get you started we’ve added Nylon Monofilament Thread to our product list.

Sometimes it’s great to be invisible! Regardless of your sewing skills this fine “invisible” thread will have you stitching like a pro. Use this high quality transparent thread with our #11 needles to sew your braids on to leather, wool, etc. Each spool contains approximately 200 meters.

Happy spring (almost!)

We are always looking for unique and unusual items to accentuate your designs.

Recently our client Paula inquired about the tiny silver beads she was seeing on several bracelet designs online.

After a few emails we followed up on her advice to add silver beads to our product listings and voilá! They are now available.

Saamisupplies is proud to offer Sterling Silver 3.00mm beads in packages of 100. Use these beautiful high polished beads to accent your favorite bracelet designs.

Manufactured exclusively for saamisupplies these sparkling beads provide an attractive contrast to the soft white of our 0.35mm pewter thread.

Integrate them into your braids or sew them onto your projects separately.

And since we’re talking materials, let’s talk about one of the hardest working tools of the craft.

Now you can purchase No. 10 round needles in packages of 20.

These high quality German manufactured needles are perfect for sewing finished braids to your leather bracelets and necklaces.

Use these sharps with transparent or cotton thread.

The diameter of this needle is ideal when separating braid sections during stitching.

*Remember to only use “sharps” when sewing your braid to your leather. Do not use a leather needle when sewing braids as it will cut the pewter thread very quickly!

These are just a few examples of new products we will be adding to the website in the coming weeks so we are excited and curious to know what our clients and students are creating!

Let us know if there are other items you would like to see us carry.
