Susan Bates® Hooks Are Coming To The Philippines!

It's official! Susan Bates® crochet hooks are coming to the Philippines! The shipment is literally on its way to the Philippines and they will arrive by end of May. They will be available for sale in June!

The first offering is a set of 6 pcs. of Silvalume® aluminum crochet hooks.
Here's a description of this special line of hooks from the Shop site:

"These hooks have the broadest size range within the Susan Bates family of hooks. Made of lightweight aluminum; each Silvalume hook undergoes a special anodizing process that etches away all surface impurities. In addition; each hook is heat treated for strength and durability and polished for a velvety smooth finish. Each size is color coded so you can find the size you need at a glance. Our famous in line head helps reduce wrist motion for fatigue free crocheting and helps you maintain a more consistent gauge."
The set already comes with this vinyl case. As you can see, one set includes the following sizes: US F5, G6, H8, I9, J10, and K10.5 (3.75mm, 4mm, 5mm, 5.5mm, 6mm, 6.5mm). If you're curious about conversions, go to this link to check the different crochet hook sizes.

There is still no published price for this, but if you are eager to secure a set for yourself, you may already place a pre-order by filling up the form below. Those who pre-order will automatically be reserved a set and be notified of the price and payment details once they are available.

As a treat for those who pre-order, you get a free vintage issue of "Stich by Stich" magazine for every set you order! Each issue has 1 or 2 crochet patterns plus other patterns in knitting and sewing. What's good about their crochet segment in each issue is that they have visual guides on how certain crochet stitches are made for the featured crochet project.
