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.

The turtle retractable scissors holder has a plastic loop that goes around one of the handles of the scissors and closes via a popper.

The back of the spool which holds the retractable line there is an alligator clip which can be clipped to your clothing.

This very handy tool enables you to have your scissors on you at all times. The line retracts to 21 inches and slides back into the spool when you are not using the scissors.

These luxurious tweezers have padded thumb and finger grips and a fine bent tip to get into the most awkward positions.

They make great unpicking tools to grab those tiny threads your finger nails just can’t keep a hold of.
They are also an ideal tool for Goldwork embroidery to hold, position and to manipulate metal threads.

Needles – Size 12 Crewel Embroidery

$2.87 USD

The size 12 crewel embroidery needle can be used for fine surface embroidery techniques where one single strand of embroidery thread is used such as needle painting, goldwork and fine white work.

The needle has a long eye and 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.

I recommend using the size 12 crewel embroidery needles for sewing down down No. 8, No. 9 and No. 10 gold purl threads as the purl threads are a very narrow gold tube that other needles may not fit through.

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
