  1. Quilting / Betweens
    • Specifically designed for quilters, the short length of these needles allows you to stitch far quicker than when using an ordinary sewing needle.

    • Another form of darning needle, the extra length and larger eyes of the Long Darners make them even more suitable for mending with wool or other thick and coarse threads.
