Easy threading Tapestry Needles
Easy threading Tapestry Needles are also called Needles for the blind. They are great for people with visual impairments who, despite their limitations, do not want to give up their beloved hobby. The thread is not threaded through an eye, but pushed through a slit in the upper eye into a second eye. The thread sits perfectly, the eye is smaller than with the regular Tapestry Needle, so the thread does not slip out of the eye as easily. They are suitable for all Embroidery techniques in which a fine thread is worked on a counted base.
