I am looking for a Joy Crafts (or other manufacturer) pricking tool without having to buy from the United Kingdom. It is used to prick tiny holes onto paper in patterns which are then stitched with thread. Do you have any ideas where I might find one? Thanking you in advance Sue Paget

We have a few options for you (check out the links below). The first is the Paper Piercer from Making Memories, and it works just as the title sounds. It also has a very convenient needle threader which can be very helpful! The second is the Sew Easy Stitch Piercer from We R Memory Keepers. It's one of the hottest tools from 2011 and has a ton of different "heads" that create all sorts of cool designs. The last is the Die Pick from Tim Holtz, which is currently out of stock, but more should be arriving soon.
