Needle Pouches - Thread Catchers

Thread Catchers and Needle Pouches by Judi Patuti & Melanie Potter

This lovely handmade Thread Catcher is a scrap bag designed to keep your work area neat and orderly. These decorative trash receptacles and their matching Needle Pouches have been exclusively designed for School of Beadwork by Judi Patuti. She is known for her beautiful matching fabrics and exquisite piping.

Comes in 6 Vibrant Fabric Patterns

The weight of the bean bag maintains its position on your beading table or the arm of your sofa or chair, and can be used as a pin cushion. The attached fabric receptacle is perfect for clippings of thread and other small trash items. We believe using smart tools in your craft is a big advantage towards efficient work, but it's even better when they are lavishly pretty!

The entire unit is also highly portable. Simply insert the bean bag into the receptacle, and tie the ribbon into a bow around it to hold in place. If you own the matching Needle Pouch, it easily fits inside the receptacle for storage also.


The lovely handmade Needle Pouch is a collaborative effort between Judi Patuti and Melanie Potter, and created to match the Thread Catchers. The Pouch is made of 100% cotton with a clear vinyl window and a nylon zipper, and is small enough to be very portable.

The matching needle holders inside the Pouch are labeled in bold hand lettering, indicating the size of the needle and making it easy to know what is stored in each holder.

To keep your needles all in one place this Needle Pouch is the perfect item. It is set up in the same fashion Melanie manages her needles, from size 10 needles to short needles called Sharps; six different sizes. All beaders need a variety of needle sizes to tackle different beading projects. Keeping a group of needles in graduated diameter that are easily accessible is essential. The Needle Pouch keeps all the needle holders stored in one place for quick access and in beautiful style.
