Hand Sewing Needles



English Sewing Needles

We Feature John James English needles, made of the finest quality Sheffield steel which is hardened, then tempered to insure the optimum amount of flexibility. Each and every one is given a copper coating to guard against corrosion. Each needle is then polished to the smoothest surface attainable, allowing them to pass through your fabric with ease. The eyes are free from burrs and are finished to make threading enjoyable, and to prevent thread from fraying or breaking, which is not enjoyable.
