Needles – Chenille

Needles – Chenille

$0.53$3.24 USD

Chenille Needles have a large eye and a sharp point and are great for ribbon embroidery and as a plunging needle for goldwork embroidery. Chenille needles can also be used for heavy surface embroidery such as crewel and Mountmellick. I carry a variety packet in which the needles range from size 18 (largest) to size 24 (smallest) and I sell the No. 18 chenille needle separately for goldwork embroidery.

In Goldwork embroidery the No. 18 Chenille needle is used to take the ends of gold threads such as check thread, Japan thread, passing thread, rococco and twists to the back of the work (plunging or sinking). The ends of these threads can be threaded into the eye of the needle and taken through to the back of the work.

A mellor also known as a mellore or melor is a perfectly manufactured tool for metal thread embroidery.

The mellor is made out a soft smooth metal that is not abrasive.

The narrower end is used as a stiletto to widen a hole in the ground fabric to plunge a heavy twisted cord or metal thread to the back.

The round end is used to nudge and push metal threads into position and is gentler on the metal threads than using tweezers as the mellor has been polished and has smooth rounded edges so less likely to damage the metal thread.

Size: 2 7/8 inches (7 1/2 cm) long by 1/2 inch (1 1/4 cm) wide

Embroidery or crewel needles have a long eye for easier threading, a slender shaft and a sharp point to the needle so that the stitches can be worked close together and there is more control for the placement of the stitches.

The needles can be used for surface embroidery and sewing.

Crewel/embroidery needles are not suitable for counted thread work as the point of the needle would easily catch the threads of the fabric, distorting the counted work.

Size 10 are my choice needles for fine surface embroidery in which only one single strand of silk thread or embroidery cotton is used.

For very fine embroidery. when only using a single strand of fine thread or for sewing down No. 8, No. 9 and No. 10 gold purl threads use size 12 crewel embroidery.

Stretcher bars are inexpensive wooden embroidery frames in which the fabric can be pulled really tight. The end of the bars have teeth that you slot together to form a frame at any size that you require for your needlework. I recommend the stretcher bar frames to work my hand embroidery kits in because they are very quick to assemble and the fabric stays taught in the frame.

I highly recommend purchasing the brass thumb tacks which are stronger and sharper than office supplies thumb tacks or quilters thumb tacks.
