Highly recommended needles for stitching bindings on quilts. There are 12 needles in each tube. We bet most of you bind your quilts with whatever needle is in your pincushion...well you will love binding with the right needle and this is it! Primitive Gatherings Binding Needle is long and thin but will not bend like a straw needle. It has a nice big eye which can accomodate heavier threads.
