John James Embroidery Needles
Embroidery sewing needles are sometimes referred to as Crewel Needles. Embroidery needles are similar in length and diameter as a Sharp needle and they have a sharp point. However, they have a long, extra large eye, which makes threading the needle so much easier when using multiple strands of stranded cotton embroidery thread.
Sizes 1, 2, 3 and 4 are ideal when embroidering on heavy fabric with twisted yarn and this is often called crewel work. The most popular size and commonly used in embroidery is a size 6 however the finer sizes of 8, 9 and 10 are fabulous to use if you prefer a finer and shorter length of needle.

Flower Power Blue Cross Stitch
Designed by Mary Self
I am always captivated by the graphic designs on ceramics so when I saw the Elayne Fallon Weston Teapot from Staffordshire Potteries I just had to stitch it. It is so reminiscent of the 1960s and 70s that as I was stitching the cool blue/teal/lime colourway I wondered how it would look in hot red/orange/pink colours.
