A Bob Haven x Maydel partnership, these incredibly versatile tambour handles for Luneville-style chain stitch embroidery are drilled extra deep to accommodate any needle length. Insert the needle all the way to work close to the fabric, or extend the needle to hold a line of beads and sequins. Can hold all needle sizes from 70 to 140. Size #90 is the standard, all-purpose needle size that works for most tambour embroidery work.

Make from painted and/or polished wood with brass fitting and screw. Turned on a lathe, drilled, sanded, and sealed by hand by artisan woodworkers in Pakistan using native white oak. Comes in matte black or polished dark brown.

Measures 5.7 in/14.6 cm long and 0.5 in./1.2cm diameter
