Curved needles are also very handy for finishing techniques, because they can pass in and out of areas where a straight needle won’t work. Embroidery needles have a slender shaft and sharp point that’s designed to pierce embroidery fabrics easily. As far as circumference goes, yes, I think most needle sizes within certain “families” of manufacturers are the same.

Tapestry needles have a long eye, a shaft slightly thinner than the eye (the eye bulges slightly at the top of the needle), and a blunt tip. Choosing the right needle for your project is so important, it will not only make your stitching much easier but will make sure your project looks its best! You could probably use crewel needles if you want sharp needles, or you can use chenille, which are shaped just like tapestry needles but have a sharp tip. They can also be found in sizes 15 and 18, with 15 being larger than size 18, and 18 larger than size 1. But for stitchers who pick up a lot of beads on the needle, and who use very tiny beads, a beading needle will come in handy.Now I’ve been adding many new skills as I make gifts for various special occasions and the needle clearly matters. Tapestry needles are also used for cross stitch, if you want to find out more about this check out our guide to cross stitch needles.

Keep in mind that there is no absolute formula or rule for what size needle to use for specific threads. Is there anything else a newbee should know, like what kind of cloth, threads and would I be into all those needles right now?

The standard sizes are based on wire sizes; that’s why needles are sized the way they are – they’re sized just like wire is, with lower numbers being heavier and higher numbers being finer. Today, I want to share a few points about hand embroidery needles, so that you can make a good choice when you select the needle you’ll use on your next embroidered masterpiece.In fact, many crewel embroiderers prefer chenille needles for crewel work because the eye is easier on the wool thread and the sharp tip and large shaft make a good hole in the fabric so that the wool thread can pass through relatively unscathed. Excellent article Mary, very clear explanations of each which also highlights the differences between the various needles. A curved needle is easier to use than a straight needle, when trying to run threads under the backs of stitches in these situations. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice.

I do plastic canvas and I assume that embroidery is kind of like that except on cloth and using so many needles. But the only situations where this really works are in counted techniques, needlepoint, stitching on open weaves, and any other time there’s already enough space between the fabric threads for the needle to pass through easily. While we all have our favorite specialty tools, our most basic and most important stitching tool – the one we can’t do without – is the needle. In a variety of sizes, including count packs, and from a selection of respected brands, including DMC, John James and Bohin, you’re sure to find the perfect hand embroidery needle.I knew some things, but I taught myself at 13 from a teen publication in the 70’s (Let Youself Sew) which was very basic. i know this is an old article, and i know my question doesn’t directly involve embroidery, but i was hoping you could tell me what size of cheniile needle to use for 10/2 perle cotton. I use a size 10 big eye needle for hand applique and find even a size 26 Chenille needle large and awkward.

While general suggestions might be made, the selection of the needle is often based on personal preference – what needle are you comfortable with in this stitching situation? The needle itself is wide so that the wool may pass through the linen cleanly and without shredding.If the needle isn’t long I can’t grab it and I have trouble feeling it, so I have to be able to see it. You can cast on the stitch to your needle – it makes more sense, anyway, since you’ll be pulling the thread through with your needle.
