  1. Thank you, Karen. It's much easier to visualize now. I think that's a better siz for my hand. Now I just have to save up the money for an order!

  2. I do enjoy comparing shuttle sizes. One thing I really like about the Jan Stawasz shuttles is the thinness of the center post. I feel like I am able to wind much more thread on them.

    2. Hello Petra! I have updated the post with a link to Mr. Stawasz contact page. :)However, please keep in mind that these shuttles are a LOT bigger than Clovers! Please see my previous post "Size Matters" for shuttle comparisons.

    1. Well, it really depends on each person. I personally like the Boyes. They are my absolute favorites. I use the Starlits when working with beads and the Tatsy with thick thread. I have not tried Mr. Jan's yet - they are collectibles!! - but I would use them when working with beads too!
