  1. Goede morgen,

    Tijdens de slag bij Vlaardingen heeft u mij de naaldbinden techniek laten zien.

    Ik wil dit graag gaan proberen. Maar nou ben ik op zoek naar een naald. Helaas helpt Google niet bepaald mee.

    Kunt u mij vertellen waar ik een naald kan kopen?

    Groetjes Nicole Koch

      Dag Nicole,
      Ik haal mijn naalden altijd op verschillende vikingmarkten. Ik zou zo via internet niets weten.
      Je kan het ook proberen zelf te maken. Hiervoor kan je bijvoorbeeld een oude tandenborstel gebruiken.
      Op Pinterest kan je genoeg ideeën opdoen😉
      Groetjes Ronald


  2. Zoek eens naar Nålbinding. En bij hebben ze ook naalden hiervoor.
