Ever wondered how cross stitch needles are made?

With each cross stitch project taking hours upon hours to complete, its easy to not think about that tiny needle in your hand, however, the life of an embroidery needle is a fascinating one. Not only were the very first made 30,000 years ago (not a typo, that’s thirty thousand years), but Leonardo da Vinci himself invented the machine to make embroidery needles. It would be silly of us not to have a blog about its awesome history, but for now, how about a video showing how modern cross stitch needles are made?
