  • Repair, a great selection of heavy duty repair needles for lampshades, mattresses, sails, packing, carpets, canvas, and leather.
  • Craft a good selection of needles including the traditional crafts of tapestry,cross stitch, embroidery, quilting and beading.
  • Doll needles  have long eyes and sharp points. These are used for soft sculpture – doll making and soft toys.
  • Mattress needles are heavy, long needles used for sewing heavy fabrics, upholstery work, tufting and for tying quilts
  • Beading needles are long and very fine for threading long lengths of small beads on to stings for making jewellery and tambour beading techniques.
