I am looking for used hooks. Perhaps you bought a hook you simply don't like or just don't use and would like to get rid of...I may be interested. I am particularly interested in bent hooks. 



I am in search of "illusion" fabric. I am in the midst of hooking a Snakes and Ladders game board and would like to hook the ladders in silver illusion. I have been told that it is no longer available but perhaps one of the members may have some they would be willing to part with. I certainly hope so. Thanks for posting this request for me.
