Needles

Essential needlework tools : NEEDLES


It is not often that I talk about the tools and accessories I use - I realize that it is all a matter of personal preference.  You all know that I enjoy various techniques some of which have their own special tools and needles.


When it comes to  Cross stitch and Samplers, Needlepoint, and Crewel Embroidery , I have used many brands of needles over the years.  I used John James but now like Bohin needles from France - they are beautifully made and my preference.

Recently, I purchased #28 Tapestry needles that were supposed to be 'superior' and I must say that they are worth every penny! They are better than the Bohin needles!  Needless to say I ordered the other sizes too!

I have waited to post this on Facebook and on my blog because I wanted to be sure - my hands are much better now and my initial impression was correct.

So if you feel like trying them they are currently on SALE from February 1-14,2017.  Please email your order directly as instructed in the post by Pat Carson below.
