    Needles Index

    Choosing the correct type of needle as well as the appropriate needle size can make a
    big difference in the quality of the stitches produced whether you are stitching
    by hand or using your sewing machine. 
    Be sure to read the description of the needle as well as the information at the top of the
    following pages to help you make your choice.

    Not all sewing needles are of equal quality. 
    I carry mainly John James, Richard Hemming, Clover, Olympus and Colonial hand sewing needles.
    I also carry some specialty needles from other companies.

    Please remember to change your sewing machine needles frequently.
    Using a damaged needle will not only produce poor quality stitching but can damage your machine.
    Hand sewing needles do wear out too!

    Keep a good selection of needles available too. 
    It is frustrating to not have the right needle when you are ready to start a project.
