Tulip needles for your needlepoint


Tulip tapestry, chenille and beading needles have been
manufactured in Hiroshima, Japan since 1948. Tulip needles are the finest sewing needles made today. The main feature of Tulip needles are their smooth fabric piecing and their flexiblity. Tulip needles go thru 30 processes to insure that each needle is a superior product.

Tulip tapestry and chenille needles are nickel with a gold plated eye. They can be used over and over again. Simply wipe off your needle and store them in the provided glass tube.

I prefer a Tulip size 24 on 18 count canvas and a
Tulip size 22 on a 13 count canvas.

The eye of the Tulip is a tad larger than the
traditional tapestry or chenille needle making for easier threading.

Sajou Scissors
Good scissors are the stitcher’s best friend.
Sajou scissors, made in France, are some of the finest scissors in the world. Each blade is calibrated with its mate and are never apart in the honing process. In this way, your blades work in perfect harmony to give you a seamless cut.

Their historic designs are impeccable; select from Tartan Plaid, Mother of Pearl, or Tortoiseshell.
Sajou Scissors are a very special gift.
