Hi this Megan with today I'm going to show you our new selection of Tulip Beading Needles and I'm really excited about these needles because they're really strong and I'm really flexible. So if you do a lot of off look bead weaving you'll be familiar with breaking your needles or having them kind of get bent in a S shape and needing to replace them. So these needles are super super flexible but really resilient. So they keep their shape really well and I'm just gonna go through and show you the sizes that we have. We've got size 10 beading needles and this one comes in a long which is kind of the standard and a short. I'll show you the difference. So if you prefer to have a shorter needle when you're doing your beading we have here the same size, the same thickness but they are almost about a half inch difference in length so its gonna just be a matter of comfort. You can of course pick up more beads at a time on the longer needle but if you like to work with a shorter needle you'll have a new option for that here and then we have size 11, 12 and 13 beading needle and those are going to be just your basic standard sizes. The 12 is of course my favorite. It's one of the more commonly used I find it works really well for any kind of work. I can just use the one size for almost everything and then we also have a loom needle and the loom needle is really little long and what that's for if you've done any loom weaving its to be able to fit across your work threads all the way in one pass so if you have a jewel loom it comes with a loom needle. This is a really good replacement. If you have another kind of loom like the rick's beading loom this can be a really really handy needle to use for that. I just wanted to show you these needles are all nickel coated steel and they do all have a slightly rounded tip. It's plenty sharp enough to use for bead embroidery and get through your materials but it has a slightly rounded tip which is going to help prevent piercing and splitting your thread it's really a nice needle to use and I just wanna show you I've been using both of these needles and this one is still pretty straight and I've been using it a lot. So a traditional needle would have been bent up by now. This one has a slight curve to it that's because when we got these needles and I tried to break this needle in half and can't I can get my thumbs touching and it still doesn't break the needle and it just kinda gets that slight curve. That as much bent up as it gets. So really pretty impressive if you've worked at the other needles you can tell right away the difference. So with regular wear it's not going to get bent much at all and even with extreme wear it's not going to break and its still going to retain a pretty decent shape. So if you've done a lot of bead weaving I highly recommend these needles. I've been using them for a few weeks now and I'm very impressed. Go to to purchase beading supplies and to get design ideas!
