About the Needles

Each Dancing Leaves kit contains a small colored folder with three needles taped inside.  There are two size 10 needles and one size 12.  Use the size 12 needle (the smaller one) when you want to work with the size 15’s, or with the Czech beads if your kit contains some.  All three of your needles have been “decapitated” for you – we cut the sharp points off.  This makes it easier to avoid catching and splitting the thread.

Don’t worry if your needle ends up looking a bit twisted.  You can straighten them out several times, if the curves make it harder to work with.  Most of us end up with “noodle needles” eventually, and keep using them till the bitter end.  Even when one breaks in half, you can use it to weave in tail threads.
