Black Gold Needles by Clover, sizes 9-10-12
These are sharps, a class of needles that are shorter than milliners needles, with 2 each sizes 9, 10, and 12. The points of these needles are SHARP and they glide with amazing smoothness through the fabric.
If you want a great needle but are not sure which size will work best in your hand, this is the pack to start with.
Be warned that this is a rigid needle. I like it a lot but if you are a serious needle-bender, this one could snap in your hand. If you think that's you, you might want to watch some of the stitching videos I've made (look under 'Video Lessons' in the menu bar). Pay attention to the way I hold my needle when I sew.
