    I have seen a long-arm quilter using a notion that he uses to pick out quilting (some that didn't work out right) while the quilt is on the frame. It reminded me of a skinny crochet hook. Does anyone know what I'm talking about, and if so, could you direct me to website that sells them? Thanks.
