|COLONIAL NEEDLE-Tapestry Petites Hand Needles by John James are known for their quality! These 1-1/4 inch long needles have blunt rounded ends that slip easily through canvas holes and woven fabrics without snagging or piercing. The smaller length of the needles allows you to keep working until the last 2 inches of floss or thread for minimum waste. Tapestry needles are used for counted cross stitch and plastic canvas. Imported.
