ID that Needle

So here you are;  you have a handful of needles and its a mystery where they came from and what they are.

Are they tapestry needles?



One can only wonder, or better yet, one can compare them to these nifty little cards and determine once and for all what's what.

Six little cards, in their own little box ready to serve your inquiring mind.  One side of the card has scale drawings of each size of needle in the group.  The opposite side of the card has a little bit of history and some telling facts that help solve the mystery.  Does your needle have a long eye or a small eye?  

Toss a set of these in your stitching bag and never be at a loss for what needle to use again.
