I am trying to find a white hook for the back of the wedding gown...I have looked in the stores in my area and beyond and they have never carried white hooks. Could someone suggest an internet site I might order from?
Thanks a lot

Here are the fabric ones...

Here are clear nylon (don't know anything about these).

I bought my white hooks a year ago at a local Hancocks but I can't find them anywhere. I wonder if they have been discontinued?

I think Joann has something like this Dritz White Hooks ( but not sure if every store carries them.
Or I also bought from Sew True before if you need large quanties: Sew True (
