COMES WITH FIVE NEEDLES AND A SPOOL OF THREAD
A Sailmaker’s Sewing Palm is an old-school piece of gear that protects your hand from both ends of the needle. To use, slip it onto your hand when making repairs on heavy textiles. Rest the back end of the needle in one of the dimples. The metal thrusting base of the sailmaker’s palm makes it easy to push the needle through any heavy material without hurting yourself. Then, wrap the thread around the thumb-shield as you pull it back through the canvas.
This kit comes with five, heavy-duty sewing needles (packing, canvas and upholstery needles) and is perfect for repairs of upholstery, torn guitar cases, boxing bags, knapsacks, carpeting, child car seats, and of course, actual sails. It also comes with a spool of all-purpose .035” tan thread (210 ft long)– waxed and ply twisted – made by the Maine Thread Company. Please specify whether you want the right- or left-hand sailmaker's palm.
Additional thread colors are available online: white, dark blue, black, tan, army.
