Ever since I can remember, I have been facinated with needles. My mother had a large collection which she used in her everyday sewing. As the years passed by, I became a collector of different types, sizes and brand names. Pictured on the side, are just some of the needles in my collection.
Today, most of us have a collection in our sewing baskets. Chenille, Darners, Embroidery/Crewel, Milliners/Straw, Sharps and Betweens are most common. For the specialist, you may find Tapestry, Darners, Long Darners, Carpet, Beading and Ball Point needles.
