The Easy Guide Ball-Tip Needle™ was created with cross-stitchers and hand embroidery enthusiasts in mind. Each needle features a special mini ball at the tip that helps to navigate through Aida and other linens effortlessly. The ball end easily “finds” the right spot in your fabric, ending the unintentional splitting of fibers while you stitch. The result will be more even and consistent stitches throughout your design. Two needles per package.

Available in three sizes 24, 26, and 28.

 

 

 

 

 

This needle threader from Clover features a flat tip for

smooth threading even with thick threads.

Works on the long eye needles such as tapestry and crewel needles

(will not work on needles with a tiny eye such as quilting needles).
