Easy Guide Ball-Tip Needle ®

Rated 5.00 out of 5 based on 10 customer ratings
(10 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. These needles will help guide every hand stitch you make. Great for counted cross-stitch and other types of hand embroidery. Available in three common sizes: 24 (40mm), 26 (37mm), and 28 (34mm). Once you try it, you will fall in love with it!

  • Two needles of the same size per package.
  • Tarnish-free steel construction.
  • Ideal for hand-stitching.
  • Ball-tip end easily “finds” the right spot in your fabric.
  • Three common sizes to choose from.
  • Featured on Reddit.
Each package includes two Easy Guide Ball-Tip Needles® in your choice of size.

Recommendations for Fabrics with these Needles:

  • Size 24 (40mm) – recommended for lower count fabrics (14 & 16 ct. Aidas & 28 & 30 ct. Linens, 25 & 28 ct. Luganas)
  • Size 26 (37mm) – recommended for low to medium count fabrics (18 & 20 ct. Aidas, 32 ct. Linen and Lugana)

    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 🙂

    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. 🙂

    These are the best needles to use for cross stitching – especially28 or 32 count fabric

    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!

    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!
