Choosing the right hand sewing needle for your sewing can become confusing with so many to select from these days.
Gone are the days of yesteryear when a Sharp Needle was used for everything and cotton was the only thread available to sew with.
The most common questions I am asked is “which needle do I use for Candlewicking” or “for Cross-Stitch?”
For some guidance, read my article that appeared in "Into Craft" e-Newsletter, entitled " Which Needle To Use When?"
 
I have also prepared a complete explanation of each needle and its use which you may find helpful in choosing the correct needle for each project.
Using the right needle for a project makes the stitching so much easier.
