Quilting needles (between) by Tulip, size 12
These are THE BEST quilting needles I’ve ever used. They are smooth, sturdy m sharp, with an eye I can thread but not one so big that it gets hung up on the fabric. I have had no bending or breakage (and usually I’m pretty hard on needles. I hand quilt a lot, and I’m VERY pleased to have found this brand. Of note: the sizing seems to run a bit small—size 12 is more like a 10 of many other brands.
