This is a really good starting package for new stitchers planning to try sashiko, boro, visible mending or any of the slow stitching and hand sewing projects that many of us are finding so very satisfying. The 4 sizes will give you a chance to find out what size needle is comfortable for you as you stitch with different thread and fabric combinations.
These are strong sharp needles with big eyes to take thicker threads (like sashiko thread) and to stitch through layers or thicker fabrics (like denim) without bending.
Manufactured for Olympus, in Japan.
Open since 2005, but currently online only, A Threaded Needle is located in British Columbia, Canada. I am always happy to hear from you by e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
