One of my fave bloggers, Nichole from Nichole in Real Life, posted the other day about sewing needles. It drew a lot of educational comments, including one from Leah about a needles co-op she uses on Yahoo. You can get a pack of 100 Organ needles for around $10! I felt I definitely had to share about the co-op -- they're taking orders through May 30, so hurry over and place your order.
On to the real reason for this post: what type of needles do you use? I had one person comment that she uses 80/12 needles for absolutely everything. I make everything from bags to quilts to baby gifts, so I use an 11 for light piecing to a 16 for topstitching and piecing heavy layers. Should I get a pack of 80/12's only and use them for everything? Decisions decisions!
What do you use and why?
