Betweens/ Quilting Needles
Quilting sewing needles are sometimes referred to as Betweens needles and are a very short and fine needle with a round eye. Traditionally they were used by tailors and professional sewers and today they are most commonly used in the art of quilting. The short length allows the quilter to create quick and even stitching.
We offer a variety of sizes ranging from size 5 to size 12 and we recommend a beginner to use a size 5, 7 or 8. The experienced quilter will use the finer sizes such as a size 10, 11 and 12 allowing even smaller stitches to be created.
