It's these kind of tulips . . .
Yes, there's a new kid in town. First, beautifully uniform seed beads. Then, great synthetic thread, and now the Japanese have developed a fabulous beading needle. The new Tulip Beading Needles are flexible but springy. They'll fit into tight places, but won't become "S" shaped or "C" shaped after multiple uses. The needle's eye is easy to thread (10 lb. Fireline fits into the size 13 needle). The tips are slightly rounded to fit more easily into beads and won't split Nymo, Silamide or One G. The size 13 needle with thread will pass through a size 15 seed bead 5 times! Reports from beaders who've used these new puppies report less hand fatigue, easy threading and a smoother beading experience.
The BEST news -- City Beads will soon be the exclusive store in the midwest to carry these wonderful needles. They're due in sometime in the next few weeks, so call to stock up before Bead and Button!
