Three Sources for Needles

The Needlework Retailer has just profiled three sources for needles that I've not heard of before.  

Sullivan's, which I thought only sold floss and scissors, has needles with gold-plated eyes.

Sullivan's also sells ball-tipped needles, which apparently help the needle glide through fabric easier.  They are a little larger than the tips of blunt tapestry needles but this might be useful if you are stitching on larger counts of needlepoint canvas.

Yarn Tree has needles called Pat's Favorite Needles (available in packs of 25 in sizes 24, 26 and 28 only) that have longer than usual eyes.

If your favorite needlepoint store doesn't have these, you can buy two of these from Yarn Tree online.
