Thread counters, or thread 'hoppers', are a great tool to add to your needlework bag. The two needles are used for counting over on your fabric. Just anchor one needle, and start counting with the second needle. When you reach a certain number, like 10, 15, or 20, just anchor the second needle. Remove the first needle, 'hop' over the second needle, and count some more! This are fantastic when gridding fabric, counting out from the center, or marking your place. The two needles are held together with colored thread and joined with a beautiful set of beads. Available in assorted colors - pictured Thread Hopper is only an example.

from United States on 10/27/2021 - Fun tool I have never used a thread hopper. I bought it cause it was pretty. After learning how it is used I wonder how I ever lived without one.
from United States on 10/13/2021 - Very handy I do a lot of counting before I begin a big cross stitch pattern so the MBT-Hopper is great. Much better than recounting if I lose my place.

I like it because it is pretty and with the strings...it won't fall through the fabric.

from United States on 09/28/2020 - Thread Hopper/Trhead Counter I saw someone use this on YouTUbe and thought it was a clever idea. I purchased two of these and keep it on my table when stitching. Great device to double check that you are on the same line when items are separated on the chart. Very useful. 123Stitch is a great company to deal with, good customer service and communication.
