  • The top of the sewing pin may come off if you pull too strong.
  • Wipe off sweat and grease after use.
  • The needle tip is sharp and dangerous, so be careful when handling lost needles.
  • Please note that using it for anything other than sewing may cause damage or injury.
  • Due to the characteristics of the fabric, a hole may be made in the fabric when a thick needle is pricked.
  • Be careful not to let the needle get inside the pin cushion.
  • This product is for needle stick only. Please do not use it for other purposes.
  • The base is made of natural wood, so the color and grain of the wood may vary depending on the product.
  • Please note that the wooden base may crack or deform if placed in a high temperature or humid place.
  • The wooden base may get sticky due to the resin of the hinoki. Wipe it off with alcohol to remove the stickiness.
