I am down to one quilting needle. What brand and size do you use? I don't have the package from the one I have and wondered where to buy some good hand quilting needles. I don't have a quilt shop near me.

Hi Dee!

My favorite hand quilting needles are Roxanne - size 10 or 11.  If I can't find those, I like the Clover needles.  Dritz needles tend to bend too easily for me.

The way to get started is to quit talking and start doing.

I love the John James Golden Eye betweens, size 9 - 10 - 11.  I don't have a quilt shop near me either so I usually buy online.  Sometimes I get them at Erica's, sometimes Quilt in a Day or Hittles.  

Nice to see you here again.  Are you buried in snow?

Thank you both. Roxanne sounds familiar and I think the one I have is a #9. I will order some and see.

This year it seems it snows 2days then it melts then repeat. Can't wait for SPRING!!!

Thanks and glad to be back and in the mood to sewbigGrin

I tend to use 11s for quilting, 9s for piecing.  As a brand, I don't have a favorite, though I quite liked the ones my MIL once bought me.  Don't remember the name but it had a sort of all-over floral-ish pattern.  Ah well.  Happy hunting

John James Golden Eye , size 9 - 10 - 11  They have the Larger Eye needles which I try to find.  10's are , my favorite

I am always bending and breaking.  I need to have a large supply on hand.  When I find them I buy a few packages.

I use Piecemakers size 10.  The eye is quiet small, but I love the short, thin needle.  I can make small,  even stitches with this needle.

I use Rosanne # 11 for many years. They are my favorite.

I like my #10 Roxanne needles pretty well. I have 10 packs of 12 John James size 11 that are just a bit much for my hands these days, and 2 packs of Piecmeker 12's.
