Made in England of nickel-plated carbon steel, these medium-fine 2-1/2 inch needles are great for seed beading and using with Superlon D or Nymo for various thread projects. They are reuseable and heftier than the Size 12 but both are often called for in projects in Beadwork magazine. They can be used to sew beads to thin fabric but are not intended for sewing through suede or leather, for that you want a Glovers Needle Size 1 or finer. The eye of the Size 10 seed bead needle is fairly easy to thread and is often used for seed beading and threading beads with small holes. We recommend having sizes 10 and 12 on hand for general use. Always keep away from infants, children and pets.
Design Hint: The best glue we have found to keep on hand in our bead studio is the Hypo-Tube Cement. After you thread your needle, take the two tails and knot them together. We like to do an over hand knot and go through the same loop an extra time before we tighten the safety knot. Then we dollop on a tiny drop of glue and begin the project. You do not have to wait until the glue dries to get going.
