(11 customer reviews)


Created with cross-stitchers and hand embroidery enthusiasts in mind!


The Easy Guide Ball-Tip Needle® was created with cross-stitchers and hand embroidery enthusiasts in mind. Each needle features a special, mini ball at the tip that helps to navigate through Aida and other linens effortlessly. The ball end easily “finds” the right spot in your fabric, ending the unintentional splitting of fibers while you stitch. The result will be more even and consistent stitches throughout your design. Therefore you can spend more time stitching! These needles will help guide every hand stitch you make. Great for counted cross-stitch and other types of hand embroidery too. Once you try an Easy Guide Needle, you will fall in love with it!

  • Ideal for hand-stitching.
  • Ball-tip end easily “finds” the right spot in your fabric.

What size do you need?

Available in three common sizes: 24 (40mm), 26 (37mm), and 28 (34mm). All three sizes are great for cross stitch and embroidery.

    These needles are the best cross stitch needles I have found. So thrill I found them.

  2. Yvonne Henke (verified owner)

    Love these needles! I’ve been waiting for them since the original seller sold them to Sullivan’s. My package also came with some free items! Best mail in a long time 🙂

  3. Lisette C. (verified owner)

    These needles really are a pleasure to stitch with! They feel very sturdy. I would definitely recommend trying them out.

  4. Madeline (verified owner)

    These are the best needles to use for cross stitching – especially 28 or 32 count fabric

  5. Colleen Calver (verified owner)

    It’s true…these needles “find the hole”. I am using the 28’s almost exclusively…sometimes the 26! I love them. The 28 is shorter and I like that!

  6. Yvonne M Henke (verified owner)

    My absolute favorite cross-stitch needle! So happy to have found these after they were sold to Sullivan. I received a couple of bonus items in my order. Super happy with the purchase 🙂

    Great needles. The little ball helps guide the needle into the hole, even through heavily stitched areas. They have a better balance than tapestry needles and seem stronger. I can’t use a needle threader with them but have no trouble getting the floss through the eye. The smaller eye holds the floss in the needle eliminating that annoying problem of having to rethread while stitching that some other needles have. I am buying more every chance I get!

  8. Deb Ovall

    These needles are amazing, I will NEVER use anything else!

  9. Lisa Guilford (verified owner)

    I love, love, love these needles! It has sped up my stitching so much as they “fall” into the holes on the smaller fabric counts. These have been a game-changer when working on black/dark fabrics. I would love to buy another 100 needles so I could have a needle with all of my WIPs and allow room to kit up more. 🙂

  10. Sandy K (verified owner)

    Very happy with these needles. Strong, separates the cross stitch fabric easily.

  11. Kristen Evans

    I am a crossstitcher. I like these needles BUT the eye is very small. I think you should consider adding a needle threader to your packaging.
