Crave: Travel Thread Kit

Catherine Strawn / July 30, 2008

Why have hotels stopped stocking their rooms with little sewing kits? We were recently staying in one that actually charged guests for a few measly pieces of thread and a needle. That’s why it’s good to be prepared for the worst. This travel thread kit actually has eight strands of thread in 21 different colors — that’s 168 pieces of thread. So feel free to tear a shirt, lose a button, or rip a crotch. [$10, Kiosk]
