Each box of Entomology Pins comes with 100 delicate black pins originally used for, yes, bug collecting! The pins are 1 1/2" long and thin enough for lightweight fabrics. Made in the Czech Republic.
Merchant & Mills is "determined to encourage the world to sew." Founded by Carolyn Denham and Roderick Field, M&M seems to be single-handedly lifting dressmaking out of its association with drudgery and cutesy florals. Carolyn's patterns, choice of fine sewing notions and tools, and simple packaging have aided in Merchant & Mills speedy ascent.
