Kris Basta is Selling Needle Stoppers Now

Remember Kris Basta's new, U.S. manufactured garter bars?  I reviewed her bulky version in this video, and I found it very satisfactory. 

The only thing that kept me from doing everything I do with my good old Japanese garter bars was the lack os a stopper. A garter bar "stopper" is a brace that makes the needles hold still while you're moving stitches.  Using your stopper makes the whole garter bar experience better.

Garter bars for certain machines have been rare, expensive, or non-existent.  Kris has mid-gauge and bulky garter bars - even 8 mm hobby machine garter bars!

Now Kris is also manufacturing stoppers!  She's got information at her website on this page:



  1. Diana,
    Thanks for the good word on the needle stoppers!
    Kris Basta

  2. You're welcome, and I'm glad you're doing them! Just wrote a note on the MK list encouraging people who are struggling with GB to use a stopper.
