Bohin Hand Sewing Needles – Big Eye Sharps sizes 3-9
Pins and needles are such small sewing tools, but when you work with quality equipment, it is such a pleasure. The French company Bohin have been manufacturing pins and needles since 1833, and since 1952 they remain the only French manufacturer of sewing needles. If you don’t know much about Bohin, or the manufacturing of pins and needles, here is a link (it’s fascinating):
‘Sharps’ are the all-purpose sewing needle for home sewing. They have a sharp point, and generally have a small round eye. If you have trouble threading needles, then the Big Eye Sharps are a perfect solution. The elongated eye doesn’t bulge, so it still slips through fabric easily. They are made of Nickle plated steel, are lovely to handle, and will last a lifetime. This 15 pce set, sizes 3 – 9, will cover most of your needs (light to medium fabric).
Bohin needles are made in France, ‘honed by tradition and finished to perfection’.
