Reduce Stress! Yes, I promise!
Well, I promise to reduce the stress needlepointing can cause on your hands, that is. I love these bankers clasps! I clip two on each of my projects and that keeps the canvas neatly rolled up. Now you don't have to have such a death grip on your canvas. It really does alleviate the stress on your hand.
Plus I prefer the "push-pull" method to needlepointing as opposed to the "scooping or sewing" method. That means I'm constantly reaching around the side of my canvas, which is so much easier if the project is rolled up.
Just let me know if you want a couple of banker's clasps...or shop online here. I can't promise they'll reduce stress in all parts of your life but they will take the pressure off your hands!
