You just can't get trugs like these in the USA, at least not ones as well-made, sturdy and long-lasting. And trust me, I've been looking for some for ages. I guess a trip to the UK will be necessary for me to get my hands on these beauties. :)
I've been hunting here in the States for these double-pointed needles made by John James. No clue as to whether they would truly help me stitch faster or keep my floss from tangling as much, but it would be fun to try!
