For cross stitchers, what’s your favorite needle for stitching?
What I’d like to know is:
- What’s your favorite needle? (size/brand)
- What fabric do you mostly stitch with?
It does make a difference if you’re stitching on aida, or 28 count linen or 56 count linen and if you have favorite needles for different fabrics, please tell me that.
The reason I’m asking is because I started out liking Sullivan’s ball point needles. Then I switched to Piecemaker’s Tapestry size 28 needles and I’ve loved those but somehow, I ended up with a much larger needle, don’t have a clue what it is but I love it.
The needles look way bigger than they are but the one on the bottom is the Piecemaker’s needle. See how much larger the one top is? I’m surprised I like it but it feels really good in my hand when I’m stitching. I’d be 100% surprised if anyone knows what needle that top one may be from looking at this picture. It has a bigger eye and it’s longer. Not sure if it’s thicker or not. OK . . please help me identify the mystery needle. 🙂
