Must Have My Zapper

Hi, it's Leslie, taking over the blog!

My First Beadsmith Blog. Where to start? How about telling you about an indispensable tool for any bead stitcher? 

I don't know how I did without a thread zapper. Fear kept me wary. Burn thread close to my labor? That's cray cray! At the same time I still needed scissors that would cut Wildfire, in particular, and to get in to close spots.  But now I am a convert. I have this thread zapper that retracts, the Ultra Thread Zap, and it is truly an indispensable tool. Fabulous. It works so fast and so safely I am almost embarrassed I was a’skeered. Did I say I don’t know how I did without this? Seriously! The filament is fine and tiny, can get close but is within your control. And the delicate filament tip won’t get damaged --this is so smart--because the tip is hidden until you push it out, and retracts as soon as you let go. So, you also won't burn something inadvertently when you put it down. 

A little sizzle in a hot product. Ask at your local bead shop, it's from the Beadsmith.

  3. I have an older one and love it but this looks so much more efficient that I may ungrade.
