Hey, Pretty People!
I was recently doing some binding "on the road", and before I left, I threw in a new package of needles. I like doing my binding with #10 John James Milliner's Needles...they're long so I can grip them easily, they're easy to thread, and they're very thin and fine...they just slide through so easily!
I have to admit that I have been stitching with the same needle for many quilts, and this is the first time I've opened up a new package of needles in QUITE some time. I was amazed. Within 2-3 stitches, it was obvious I'd been using my previous needle for WAY too long. That binding was done in HALF the time because the needle slid through easily and quickly! A good reminder to change needles frequently. They get dull, and rough and make your stitching harder on your hands and SLOW.
Here's a link to my favorite binding needle!
