Needle Options

We know how impossible it can be to find specific sewing needles secondhand, so we've taken it on ourselves to organize and offer them in sane, share-the-love quantities.

Logic: if our batch of 100 secondhand needles replaces demand for 10-20 batches of new ones (and all related packaging), that's a win for zero waste (hint: that's the logic behind our entire business model: scalable impact).

We also have several separate specialty needle listings that may be of interest, and we've included links below. We'll continue adding options as you let us know what you need (and as we're able to find quality items with enough to go around...).

-Quilting/Betweens (tiny/small/fine) - also good for dainty lace work
-Tapestry/Chenille/Cross-stitch (blunt & sharp mix)
-Self-threading/ez-thread (reduce demands on depth perception, vision, & fine motor skills)
-Standard darning/darners (blunt point, typically longer).

Quick tip: a few quick jabs into an emery sand strawberry (the ones you see attached to those tomato-style pincushions) or into a steel-wool pincushion will help keep your needles sharp between uses.

  • Shipping

    • 100% secondhand packaging

    • intentionally slow in-house service levels

    • ground shipping only

    This is climate-competent commerce, and we talk a bit more about each of these strategies on our 'official' shipping policy page:

    The Fine Print 
  • Proactive Satisfaction + Refunds

    We have adopted a 'generally generous' approach to fulfilling many of our product listings, as sending a wee bit extra can avoid costly errors & 'fix it' shipments (besides, we find most folks appreciate the occasional freebie).


    That said, if you would prefer to avoid the extras, we will gladly rightsize or downsize your order on request (product price would remain the same because more labor + less product = wash). If you prefer this option, please include a detailed order note to specify the quantity you wish to recieve (i.e. 'please send precise count of 7 for XYZ product').


    As a rule, we discourage returns - but we also don't abide crappy customer experiences. To initiate issue resolution in the event that we miss the boat with your order (gaps happen!), head to our refund policy page (linked here - and at the bottom of any page) to get started.
