What is an EMBROIDERY NEEDLE?
Also known as Sharps, these needles have sharp tips that pierce the fabric as you stitch, and larger eyes for accommodating floss and embroidery thread. Embroidery Needles have two great advantages - a long eye for easy threading with multiple strands and a very sharp point which will pierce close-woven fabrics. You will find these needles rivaled only by Tapestry Needles for their variety of uses. Embroidery needles can be used for surface embroidery, smocking, cutwork and crazy quilt embroidery.
