I know I know, I have let this website get a bit old with out adding new content for three years!
I will confess that I have left Bettiemarie slowly die and I went of and concentrated on other aspects of my life. But I want that to change! Bettiemarie was one of the first projects I started coming out of college and I want to breath life into it. I am thinking I am going to make a slow start with this. Slowly clearing out the cobwebs and wiping of the dust.
I plan to do this by slowly adding to my sew’opedia and continue posting about some sewing adventures. I will have to pull out some of my sewing projects and finish them with you!
A new start is happening! Lets do this
Ballpoint come with a rounded tip, and are perfect for jerseys or stretch knit fabrics as they part the fabric rather than piercing them like a Sharp needle.
Also known as betweens, These are a short thin needle with a small, rounded eye for thread. Quilting needles are great for small, detailed stitching, such as quilting, of course. Their thinness and small eye help them pass easily through heavyweight fabrics, like denim or tweed.
like the Tapestry needle, the Chenille needle also have a large eye like tapestry needles, but they have a sharp point. This makes them ideal for crafts like ribbon embroidery, where you need to pull a thick strand through a closely woven fabric.
These needles have a blunt point and a big eye. They’re made this way so they can pass through needlepoint and tapestry canvases without damaging them. And that large eye will accommodate the thicker yarns used for these kinds of crafts.
A leather needle is a special tipped needle that has three sharp edges to make it easier to sew leather.
These needles have an tiny slit on the side of the needles, or on the top if the eye, so that by sliding the thread against the slit it allows the thread to slide into the eye of the needle. These needles are ideal for partially sighted or people who have difficulty threading needles.
