Needles and Pins


SEWING NEEDLES
Our sewing needles are especially selected for your miniature and craft work - many are sizes which are not ready available in the stores.

BETWEENS - Or quilting needles, short, 22mm to 25mm long, with a small eye.
SHARPS - Longer version of the Betweens, about 29mm to 32mm long.(no longer stocked)
CREWEL - Or embroidery needles - same length as Sharps but with a longer eye, making threading easier. (in my opinion the best all rounder, for all fine work).
SIZES - the higher the number, the finer the needle.

BETWEENS/QUILTERS
Quilting needle, with a small eye. These are John James brand "Gold" needles
Code Description Price
SNQ10 Size 10 - 25.5mm short (1")! 6 to a packet £1.00 per packet
 
CREWEL EMBROIDERY
Standard length needle - just because it says embroidery doesnít mean you canít use them for everything (I do!).
Fantastic needle with a long eye, which I think is easier to thread.
Now these are not in fancy packets like the others, they come loose in a little envelope so please donít tip them all over the floor when you open them!
