Set of 5 packs of beading needles. It looks like normal sewing needles except they are more flexible, thin and have much smaller thread holes (eyes). The higher the number, the thinner the needle to match the size of seed beads. Hold the thread between your thumb and index finger with a small piece, about two to four mm, extended past your fingers. Push the eye of the needle onto the flattened or conditioned thread. Most times, it will slide on easily on the first try.
