Needlework magnifiers are helpful to have in your needlepoint tool kit for a wide variety of reasons. If you're working from a printed chart or book on a counted cross stitch pattern or embroidery design, it can sometimes be a bit difficult to see exactly how many stitches there are. A needlework magnifier can clarify the situation and allow you to count accurately. They can also come in handy when you're working on a needleart project and need to precisely place a needpoint stitch or design. Just look through the needlework magnifier to get a close-up detail of the situation and place your stitches exactly where you need them with ease! They can also be helpful if you have trouble working with smaller plys of embroidery thread or floss as well as when working in very small detail stitches that require a lot of stitches in a small area.
