Day 3…Needful things for Quilters

12 Days of Christmas 3

We are almost done!!! Today’s needful thing is also essential for any wool appliqué!  Chenille needles…now why do we need chenille needles?…I use the #24 for my Valdani #12 wt. threads for hand stitching my embroidery stitches…it has a sharp point, it is fine and strong with a big eye for threading the perle cotton…The #24 is little…it will not shred your wool…and you can control it to make tiny stitches too!  You will not be disappointed in this needle…but what about the #22?  I use the #22 with anything thicker than a #12 perle…so #8, #5 …When making larger stitches…I also might use a #22 when I double the #12 thread and/or when I am making colonial knots!  Do you know about a colonial knot?  I never make French knots ever…I am sure there are a few of you out there who have learned this knot from me…it is the best isn’t it!!!  So for the special on our Primitive Gathering needles I am offering a combo at a nice price…so its like getting more than one pack free!  3 of each size needle for $12.00!!! I never put these on sale because they more than a little labor intensive!  So stock up woolly ladies!

The winner from yesterday is marieDecember 22, 2013 at 9:09 am

    I love your needles!! Was using a different one, same size though; but they were longer and yours are just nicer. Actually working on wool today while the ice is gathering outside.
    Do not know what a colonial knot is. Would like to though. Think I will go google it now.

    I haven’t heard of a colonial knot. Do you use it where a French knot is called for?

  12. 12 Sandy K
    December 22, 2013 at 1:23 pm

    I haven’t worked with wool, would the chenille needles be used with anything else?

    I just love your needles for stitching with wool., OI bought them last year and won’t use anything else.

    December 22, 2013 at 1:25 pm

    I do love your needle packets. My problem with needles is once I remove it from a package, I don’t remember which size it is. These needles are easy to tell which are which. Lisa, I wanted to tell you that I have finally finished the sheep ornament from last year’s christmas blog hop. When I pulled it out this year all it needed was to blanket stitch the edges and now it is on the tree. I love all the wool ornies I have made from your patterns on my tree.

    If you work with wool and the specialty threads these needles are a MUST!! I often give them as gifts to my wooly friends–I can’t get enough of these needles–!!!

  16. 17 Sheila S
    December 22, 2013 at 1:29 pm

    I saw those last year at the Chicago quilt show and would love to own some. Not only do I think that they would help on my wool projects but the packages/holders are just beautiful!

  17. December 22, 2013 at 1:29 pm

    These will be on my list to buy in the future. I have had a hard time finding a good needle to use with perle cotton.

    Lisa, you are my life line, what a gift you are! The needles look great as failing eye sight don’t do too good with size 12 quilting needles. Your displays have been interesting and looking forward to two more days. I will miss your daily visits Your party looked like FUN, Santa’s lap, and the Elfs new outfit. Lol, Joan


  31. December 22, 2013 at 1:43 pm

    Love those applique needles and you certainly can never have enough. Merry Christmas to you and all your family and staff. The party pictures were really fun to see.

  32. December 22, 2013 at 1:43 pm

    There is nothing so satisfying & relaxing as hand appliqué. That is one of my favorite things to do on a Sunday afternoon; sitting outside in Southern California. It’s a quiet, reflective time before another Monday rolls around. Thanks for explaining the differences between the needle sizes!

    Funny…I was just finishing up (in the nick of time – haha) Old St. Nick and thinking of how I love those needles! Use them all the time, and like to have plenty of spares on hand.

    Good to hear about this needle. It ‘s so important to have the best needle so we have lovely stitches. Thanks for the reminder to use the colonial knot. I had forgotten to use that stitch.

    OHH! I need needles to start my snow man kit I got from you at the Houston, Thank you for the list of needful things – some of them I didnt know about so I’m anxious to try. Have some fun holidays. Pat

    I love hand sewing needles! I do hand applique but have never worked with wool–I’d like to. Your information about needles is invaluable–with the correct needle, hand stitching is so enjoyable.

    I am a convert as far as these chenille needles go–they are essential for wool applique!

    I love wool applique but have never used these needles, maybe I wouldn’t struggle to thread the need if I did.

  55. December 22, 2013 at 2:33 pm

    Thanks Lisa for helping us novice wool appliquers with which size needle to use. Nice learning from a pro!

  56. December 22, 2013 at 2:36 pm

    Thank you so much for the wonderful information and tips for using the correct needle for each purpose. I am sure to order some if I am not lucky enough to win some. Merry Christmas to all at Primitive Gatherings and those who love the wooly world!

  57. December 22, 2013 at 2:38 pm

    Thank you, thank you for the wonderful information about the proper needle to use for our applique. I surely need these needles to finish my SBOW stitches! Merry Christmas to you and yours!

  58. 59 Kathy
    December 22, 2013 at 2:45 pm

    Since we are already ahead of the record for snow here in Wisconsin, I think we should all stock up on these needles for all the projects we will be doing when staying inside!!! Thanks, Lisa, for the lesson in needle sizes.

    December 22, 2013 at 2:48 pm

    These needles are the best! I used them for all of my Summer blocks of the month and they were perfect. They glide like butter and are great for wool applique. Love them!

  74. December 22, 2013 at 3:42 pm

    I love your chenille needles, I used them to do some utility quilting on a piece with perle 8 cotton. I guess you probably call it big stitch. I’m also using them to hand quilt a frosty mugs table runner.

    Thanks for all the great information on the products you are featuring.

  75. December 22, 2013 at 3:45 pm

    I can’t wait each day to see what you have in store for us, and got so excited to see the needles. I first purchased these needles at the Houston Quilt show a couple of years back along with my first wool applique project and love them and have feel in love with wool applique. I have added them to my must haves!!! Thanks!!!

    Thanks for much for the great information and price on the needles. I have always found needle size and type really confusing and I’m never sure I have the correct one. Thanks also, for these great deals!!! Waiting until the end to order everything at once. Happy Holidays to you and yours.

  87. December 22, 2013 at 4:19 pm

    I have only used #24 needles but I will try the others. I have learned a lot from your blogs. Thanks lisa

    December 22, 2013 at 4:27 pm

    I learned the colonial knot a hundred years ago, when candle wicking was popular. French knots are impossible to execute without a little loop left behind. Good on ya for launching the crusade for colonial knots.

    I am always losing my needles or bending them. Each one seems to last thru only one project. My friends say it is because I am left handed! Who knows.

  91. 92 Mary Hilyer
    December 22, 2013 at 4:46 pm

    They are good needles. Lisa turned me on to these! No, southpaw, it’s not just that. I have bent needles too.
    I need to know if I’m waiting too long to order? I was waiting until the 12 needful things is finished so I could place my order or have I messed this up?

  92. 93 Melanie
    December 22, 2013 at 4:52 pm

    I always knew there must be a science to needles…I have mostly used the ‘eye ball method’ –just kinda looking at what might work… I’m anxious to get some and try. Thanks for the lesson…oh and Merry Christmas from the U.P.

  93. 94 Diane S
    December 22, 2013 at 4:53 pm

    Lisa – thanks for the info! I’ve been working on wool stuff for less than a year and just using whatever needle that I could get the thread threw or whatever I had on hand. Adding the needles to my shopping cart!! On a side note to the lady that commented on forgetting which needle she was using after she took it out of the package – I use one of those small red pin cushions – tomato or strawberry thing – and mark a section with the needle type and size. I place the needle there after use to keep track of it. Also have done this with my machine needles when I have had to change back and forth between jean, metallic, quilting needles, etc for projects. Enjoying your “Needful Things”. Going to look up the Colonial Knot – working on some projects with lots of French Knots.

    I live in area that has little to offer in the wool dept. so anything I have learned is from you… so thanks for the info regarding needles. I will be stocking up! I really don’t know when to use the different sizes of threads unless the pattern tells me to.. at least now I will know which needle to use!

    Love wool applique! I just finished a little wool applique project for a gift before I sat down to read your blog. One of the #24 needles would have been great. Will have to get some. I thought I’d go blind threading the embroidery needle that I was using. Love your blog and all the helpful hints that you give all us of who follow you.

    Love these needles and love the sizing tip, purchased several cans last night so I could get started this morning . Do I use my steam as I normally would when pressing my fabrics or dry iron to dry the sizing? Or does it matter?
