  1. Hi Becky, I bought your perle cotton 12 and the Crewel Needle, size 9 and I cant get it threaded . Do you use it as one strand or do you separate the strands..I am having a hard time getting it through the needle.

  2. Hi Izzy:
    You can thread the perle cotton two ways. Use the quilters needle threader that I have on the site OR put a little bit of the end of the thread in your mouth. Dampen it. Smash it flat with your lips and/or your teeth. You may need to dampen and smash 2-3 times.
    Cut the thread flat, not at an angle.
    Dont split the strands. Perle cotton is not designed for that.
    I did find a different needle at market and I hope to have it in stock in a couple of weeks. If you have one, try a size 7 or 9 sharp. The eye is rounder and the needle is stout enough to work.
    Hope this helps,
    Becky
