Thumbnail Filmstrip of Tulip Piecing Needles, #8 Images
DescriptionTulip Piecing Needles #8, tube of six (6) needles, 0.61mm x 37mm (3.7cm long). These piecing needles feature a sharp needle point with good piercing characteristics and a very strong needle body, ideal for hand piecing. Similar to a 'Sharps' needle, it is the thickest when comparing to Silk, Applique, Milliners and Sewing ranges (the #7 Sewing needle is thicker). It works well for hand sewers with a strong grip and will accommodate 50wt thread and finer. The size #8 needle is a touch longer than size #9. Size changes in length only. All Tulip Needles, manufactured in Hiroshima, Japan, are designed specifically for needle artists. Hand-stitching needles have beautiful eyes for easy threading; special processing produces a body of ideal strength. Surface treatments include lengthwise polishing and/or nickel-plating for needles that resist rust and glide easily through fabric. The precision point provides smooth piercing for easy stitching. Needleworkers report experiencing less hand fatigue using Tulip brand needles!
