Super Glide Applique Needles – size 11
This needle has a very easy-to-thread eye which, I think, is its finest attribute. It's called 'Super Glide' and it does indeed move smoothly through the fabric.
This is a thicker needle than both the Tulip and Clover Black Gold needles and some of you will appreciate its heft. I like it for English paper piecing or hand piecing more than I do for hand applique, but it is a needle that I will keep on hand for those kinds of sewing.
