Topics: Proper Needle for Fabric Beading

Q.
What needle should I purchase that will go through both beads and fabric, in order to bead fabric?
- Elizabeth
A.
Using a size 10 or 12 English beading needle is recommended since either work with light and heavyweight cotton. A size 10 is great for size 11 seed beads or larger, and size 12 is ideal for size 15 seed beads or rocailles. There is also a triangle tip needle for heavier materials such as leather.
