Needles – Tapestry

Needles – Tapestry

$4.00 CAD

Tapestry needles have a blunt end to the point of the needle and is used for counted thread embroidery because the point of the needle does not catch or pierce the threads of the counted fabric when working from one hole to the next. The tapestry needle has a long eye for easier threading.

The needles I supply range from size 20 being the largest to size 28 being the finest. I  use the No. 24 Tapestry needles in my Hapsburg Lace kits and the No. 26 and No. 28 Tapestry needles in my blackwork kits.

These very fine tip tweezers are excellent tools for a wide range of embroidery purposes and is the tool that I use the most for hand embroidery.

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

The magni-clips are magnifiers that clip onto the bridge of your glasses, they can be flipped up when not in use and put down over your glasses for close up work.

The magni-clips are light weight and rimless so as not to distract from your stitching. Excellent for all types of hand embroidery and close up work.

If you do not know the magnification that you require I suggest trying out different reading glasses over your current glasses to find out the magnification that you require.

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.
