    Sewing Needles

    What's the best brand? The ones I'm using are bendy, frustrating garbage.

    What are you trying to sew? And are you hand sewing or machine sewing.

    These are very important questions!

    I don't think brand matters. But if you are trying to sew denim with a quilting needle, for example, it won't work.

    I'm hand sewing some heavy American flag patches on shirts and coats. I'm trying to use a needle that's burly enough to poke through the materials but thin enough to be able to push through.

    Hm. A denim needle might work. Get a thimble, too, that will help push it through the fabric.

    Why not? You do the dishes and vacuum, why not sew, too?

    She got me a sewing kit for Christmas. She didn't want me rifling through her stuff I guess. It has a fifty needle selection. Is it trial and error until I find the right one?

    Did you ask her which is the best needle to use?

    And what do you mean, "hoop thing"? An embroidery hoop?
